Hi from outskirts of Sydney
« on: April 14, 2020, 08:29:03 pm »
Hi everyone. We started our journey with a hive purchased spring 2019, and were finally able to buy a nuc in December. It's been very exciting and we have loved watching the growth of the hive and how much it grows each few weeks. It's very addictive!

justnlis, welcome to the forum. And we all agree with you. Beekeeping is fascinating. Are your plans to be a hobbyist, or to go into the bee business. We have people here who are both, and will have great advice.

We had a lovely warm day on Monday so i rearranged my hives for the winter (packed down), hope you are still getting some warmer weather up there!

Thanks Bob Wilson. It's a hobby for us, but can see it will grow to be a big part of our lives!

Thanks Ralphee. We had 26 today and anticipate 18-20 for the next week or so.With that in mind we've made the decision to delay pack down for a bit - there's plenty of activity in the gardens!

Thanks Jim. I'm sure we will have LOTS of questions, so we have started reviewing what's already here. A great wealth of information!
