Had my first beginners beekeeping class at Candlestick park in San Francisco last Sunday. My first chance to don the suit and hold frames of honey and bees. You may all have done this a thousand times before but to me it was an amazing experience. Thousands of little insects busy like, well, bees. No blood thirsty swarm, just a buch of chill little ladies going about their business. Our instructor gave a great beginners class and is setting up to run some more advanced classes. I will have to check those out. Now I just need to find somebody local who could use a little slave labor so i can get some experience before attempting my own hives.
