"Hi, my name is Keith, and I am a beekeeper."
Does this sound familiar? Sometimes that's the way it feels, like I have to admit that I am hooked on keeping bees and I need help.
Are there others, keeping bees in Northeast Seattle, that think they could benefit from working together rather than alone, with their bees? Regular monitoring of the bees and doing what's right to keep them happy goes a long way towards achieving a successful harvest of honey. And I would like to team up with two or three beekeepers to work as a team. If we get enough response, we can form more than one group based on locations. I really want to have productive hives this year, how about you?
YOU DON'T HAVE HIVES, BUT WANT TO LEARN MORE?
I am hiving 3 four-pound boxes of bees, with Queens, more honey than I can ever use in a year. My neighbors are graciously letting me use one of their hives, in addition to the two of mine. Beekeeping isn't cheap, and maybe the cost has put you off. If there is anyone or two people who want to purchase a share in a hive, let's do it. You'll need to commit to the work schedule and commit financially, but as a result you will learn a lot about bees and whether you want to do more in the future; and you'll take home some of the best tasting honey ever.
If you've never had "city honey," you are in for a treat!
