Backyard Beekeeping

I am seriously considering getting a beehive set up in my backyard. Right now I am gathering information but I'll need to order my bees soon if I'm going to get started this spring. I am considering what type of hive to get. I am a small framed woman who will be maintaining the bees on my own. I am concerned about not being able to lift them. I may have to stick to shallow supers. We'll see. So much to learn.

I just ordered my bees. We have a Bee Dicussion Group that meets on the 4th Monday at 7:00P.M. at Lacamas Commuity Center. It is a great group with really good info. If you are interested email me

You lucky! I have a beekeeping friend who is mentoring me. I am hoping she'll maybe help me catch a feral swarm. Did you order local PacNW bees? I look forward to hearing about your experiences.
