Hi Polyanwood.

This year was my first as well!

I have ended up with hives into double figures going into the winter.

I joined my local BBKA group early on and managed to bag me a young lady who helped me through my first season,she even gave me my first bees from a split.

Welcome to the forum...

Hi All
Yup im another one at the end of my first season, only got 3 hives that are populated, and like others, hope they all get through winter.

I am surprised at just how many of us have had bees for 3 years or less, that can only be a good thing as we will learn together.

Will be sticking some pics in my album so people can see who they are chatting with, why not do the same.. doesnt just have to be images of you, could be your bees/hives/family etc etc.

Hi all

What a great site, joined forum lastnight had a link on a forum that I use for my poultry!

Only had our hive since July and have plenty of questions to ask as we (hubby) do not know what we are meant to do with hive for winter etc

We are in Cheshire/Manchester

Cheers
Jules and Bert
