If you can hear pacing, that’s me waiting on my honeybees. This weekend, much to my disappointment my honeybees didn’t arrive. You really shouldn’t be surprised, because if they had arrived one of the first photos you’d have seen this morning were my honeybees. According to my supplier, I should receive them early this week.
The good news is, I have everything ready for my honeybees, the few last minute items needed have been acquired and so now the waiting begins…
(drums fingers impatiently.)
I have to give a shout out to Roger Williams, president of the Central Maryland Beekeepers Association. He’s always responded to the emails I’ve sent to him. He’s always giving me additional information that has been extremely helpful. While he’s not technically my bee mentor, I consider him to be one because of all the helpful advice I’ve received from him! Thanks Roger, for helping this new beekeeper feel at ease.
Once, I get to the level where I have a lot of hands on beekeeping experience I’ll definitely volunteer to help out a new beekeeper. The thing is, if you’re going to volunteer to be a mentor, you really should do that. If you don’t want to, don’t offer to be a mentor.
