This evening I attended the bi-monthly meeting of the Northern Kentucky Beekeepers Club. As is always the case, we had a great discussion about the current state of the honey crop here in Northern Kentucky. The consensus is that 2008 is shaping up to be a great year, even for us beginners.
One of the great things about being a member of the local club is the ability to ask questions and get information from seasoned beekeepers. As a beginner, I've found the more information the better. I was encouraged to see several other 1st year beekeepers at the meeting and look forward to getting to know each one.
If you're a beginner or are just interested in learning more about bees and are in the Northern Kentucky area, we meet the first Tuesday of every other month at the Boone County and Campbell County Extension offices. Our next official meeting will be in November at the Boone County office.
By the way, I absolutely love the fact that we say the "Pledge of Allegiance" to our American Flag before each meeting.
