I can't believe I have a little more than a week until my bees arrive. I'm trying not to think about it too much because I don't want to have any preconceived ideas about my experience before it happens.
I was advised by another beekeeper to find a recording of bees and listen to it everyday until the bees arrive so that the hum of my colony won't be too unnerving... I'm still trying to find such a recording.
Beekeeping meeting is Tuesday, can't wait to attend and hopefully find myself a mentor. Wish me luck, I need it!
