Newbie: Should I Bother??
I have been curious about beekeeping for a long time. I am interested in having a few bees, just enough to provide honey for up to 4 people on a regular basis. I'm getting "Beekeeping for Dummies" from the library, but I thought I'd ask the experts here. :) Do some people just have "a few bees" or after the cost of equipment (whatever that is!) and care for bees, it is sort of ridiculous to "just have a few" because you've spent so much money? Or maybe it's not expensive? I had kind of envisioned a couple of beehives in my back yard and me pulling dripping honeycombs out every day, but keep in mind, I know NOTHING about beekeeping. :) Thank you!!
