Is anyone planning on attending the NM Beekeepers Association seminar in July with Michael Bush?

He's using scrap pine boards he's had lying around.  Not planning to paint them, either.

What type wood is he using to build the box?

Not sure how much I can contribute as I'm not planning on having a hive this year. But I'd love to hear how all of your bees are doing.

Yes thanks Rob.  Looking forward to seeing where this new hobby will lead.
