If anyone is wondering when is best time to get involved in beekeeping. The time is now. The bees will be delivered early April, so they must be ordered now. You have 2 months to get your equipment, assemble it, and paint it. The Cookeville Beekeepers will be offering a beginners class for those who want to learn more. They will have a meeting Feb. 7 @ 6:30 at the Putnam Extension off. by the fairgrounds.
