As the new members start to come into this forum I thought it would be interesting to ask how long you have been keeping bees how many hives you got and how you got started. I believe it would help us all get aquainted and know each other a little better. I know we have an introduction page but thought I would try to get some posting going in the general chat So I guess I can start

I got about 70 hives been keeping bees for going on 5 years. I got started when the doctors thought I needed a hobby to help relieve stress and maybe help control my Blood pressure a little easier. I dont think he had 70+ hives in mind when I took on the hobby ;)

I began years ago, when my husband decided to start keeping bees. It was neat, I was his helper. I learned some then but many years went by without beekeeping and I forgot most of what I learned. A few years ago I decided to start keeping bees again, and have read and had help from many folks.

I consider myself still a beginner, have only three hives but hope to have more. Still trying to understand what's the best way to manage them and keep them healthy.
