Kristi's "Newbee" Blog ~ Introduction to Me!

April 8, 2018

Hi, My name is Kristi and I am a newbee here with not only bee keeping but also blogging!  I thought this would really help me chronicle the journey I am about to embark on. My great uncle was an avid bee keeper.  I was pretty young and didn't understand really any of it other than he brought us honey, wore a funny suit...  I have wanted to keep bees but never really knew the first thing about it.  I went to the "Bee Workshop" and was instantly drawn in to this world of bees! I had no idea the complexity and divine world of the bee.   I signed up for the workshop not really knowing what it would entail.  I will say, I am overwhelmed, worried, and excited all at the same time.  I have read the book I received, watched YouTube videos, and have went to the Stark County Bee Keepers meetings in the hopes of understanding what I am about to embark on.  In about a month I've learned some new vocabulary I had no idea of before... brood boxes, honey supers, Varroa mites, wax moths, queen separators, 8 frames, 10 frames, capped brood, brood pattern, capped honey....

With all that said, here I go!  Jumping right in to this bee keeping world.  First order of business, ordering bees, boxes, suits, tools!  Wow, it is pretty pricey getting started!  That has been a surprise but this is an investment for years to come and a hobby that will hopefully bring me much joy! (even though I am sure sorrow, frustration, and failure too)
