A New Year in Beekeeping

With the turn of the calendar so begins my second year as a beekeeper. I'm very thankful to all the people who helped me my first year, including those of you who read my blog. I'm encouraged every time I look at the visitor map and see the red dots from new locations and those that grow bigger. I know some of you are non-beekeeping friends and family. Thank you for allowing me to share my experience with you.

As for 2009, I have a few interesting ideas, including cataloging local honey sources here in Northern Kentucky, entering my honey in the local county fair, and continuing to encourage new people to start beekeeping.

There are several beekeeping schools coming up in the local area. If you are interested, please check out this link to the Kentucky State Apiarist. There, Phil gives all the details of upcoming classes, but you have to sign up early for most of these as they fill up very fast.

I look forward to hearing from you all.
