Hi everybody,

many of you may already know me from BackYard Chickens where i can be found under the same account-name of WannaBeHillBilly too.
Once you start with something »farming« as a former city dweller, there is no way of going back to dull urban life! So in Summer 2018 we planted some fruit-trees and vegetables, got our first six ducks and by now there's 29 of them. Planning on planting even more veggies this year, try again to grow potatoes, try out kabbage and the next big thing: I like to have bees - and that's why i joined here.
Still have to read a lot of articles about beekeeping before i even can start to ask questions, but the time will come.

Yes, I recognize you from BYC! I'm glad you joined us here! I want to get bees too, so maybe we can learn together!

Sounds like a plan! - I' currently trying to figure out the minimum needs to start with bees. All the beekeeping stuff is really expensive…

What?!!?? You came over to the dark side?! Traitor?! :lol: great to see you buddy! Maybe we convince these guys to buy some salted duck eggs? :lol: doubt it...I think you might like this forum even more than over at BYC...shhhh..I didn’t say that outloud...:). But, everyone is very laidback, and very helpful. There has never once been any sniping that I’ve read. And I doubt they’ll hold it against you for being a computer geek...:lol: I’m so glad you came over to BYH!! Can’t wait till everyone gets to know you!!

Welcome from another Texan! I’m north of Tyler, was raised in Houston. I love to garden and will be glad to help. I’m Baymule on all 4 forums, but seldom go to BYC anymore.

Hey i lived in H-Town for over 10 years before moving to WV. Where in TX do you live? - Still miss the BBQs!!!
I was born in Baytown, but moved to the Alvin area (south of Houston) about a hunnert years ago, lol. Definitely can't beat the barbque here... first thing my kids learned to cook was brisket!
