Howdy! from Jackson Hole, in NorthWest Wyoming, just south of Grand Teton & Yellowstone National Parks.
I have been intrigued by beekeeping since, during the California years, our children's 70+yo preschool teacher kept a small number of hives on her one acre property...and traded my bread for her honey. I always felt I got the better end of the deal, and now wish sweet Mrs. Nosworthy could see her influence blossom in our Short-Season Garden, Happy! Hen House, Turkey Corral and soon-to-be SnakeRiver Bee Hive.
Not knowing A THING about beekeeping but interested in supporting bees on our planet as well as enjoy delicious and nutritious Hoback, Wyoming honey, we decided to take the plunge. We trust this group of astute beekeepers to guide us to the resources, links, support, etc. to be able to successfully care for our Flow Hive and its inhabitants due to arrive in 2016.
i know it's done all over the world, but especially interested in caring for bees during cold, hard winters where temps may dip to -20-30 for a couple of weeks at a time then hover around 0 for long periods.
Thank you in advance for your support...and, anyone else out there from NW Wyoming?
