This is Gerald out here on the west coast in Washington state. I also getting back into beekeeping so having to catch up on all the new stuff.
I’ve got three Nuc’s coming in to populate my new hives I built n assembled this winter. I also ordered a full setup of Cedar Hives. At 70 years the big pine boxes are weighty… I will slowly convert to narrower 8 frame but want to get this first season under my belt.
I also have a couple of five frame bait hive boxes built n ready. I’d love to catch a swarm if possible this season. “Nothing ventured nothing gained,” as my mom use to say !
Again … Welcome aboard to beekeeping, Never too old to do something new.
P.S. This is me completing 10 new deep frames in my new assemble jig this afternoon.
