Welcome Nugget Shooter.  I started with 4 hives of 2 frames of brood in the beginning of June this year. They have built up nicely and given me about  280 lb of honey so far. 
 It is my understanding that area I live in is above average for honey production.
  Maybe we will hear more about your Nugget collecting sometime.

Bees and fun, it's what we like to practice here. Friendly as all get out and no attitudes.

Welcome to the forum.  Remember the below quote and ask questions from our friendly folks.  Don't be a "pee on the fence guy."

"There are three kinds of men. The one that learns by reading. The few who learn by observation. The rest of them have to pee on the electric fence for themselves." Will Rogers
