    Mine have made a really big jump this week. I'm seeing a lot of budding after pruning. Won't be long until full bloom

    It took all of about 36 hours for them to find and drain the jars.

    Going to take out another batch of food for them tomorrow, . . . hope to get the wax in the frames and get them ready to go tomorrow as well. I've never put on supers this early, . . . but I'm going to try it this year, . . . see what happens.

    Last year where I normally would get 20 to 22 quarts of honey, . . . I got 6 pints, . . . barely. Hope to rectify that this year.

    May God bless,

    I heard a lot of people say that there bees didn't do well last year and the honey take was a lot lower than average.

    Was warm here today but overcast but since we got the most snow in the lower peninsula and 3rd most in the state this year we still have plenty. Hopefully the bad weather is just about over and true spring will be here.

    Been watching the weather in your area all winter because of our family still stupid enough to live in Minnesota. Man, I feel for ya'll! I recall living there, this was the most depressing time of the year for me. Just when the last of the snow melts and you think it is finally over, you get that one renegade snowstorm come through and dump another foot. Man, that sucked! I always knew it would melt in a day or two, but it still made me suicidal.

    I used to think that way but after enough deployments in the Middle East and being stationed down south, I donít mind. Now ten years from now maybe. lol for now I relax in winter.

    We have almost 70 degrees here today, and Wednesday we're supposed to get 10" to a foot of snow. This weather is nuts this year. I'm glad I didn't take the plow off my Rhino last weekend like I planned. Damned Groundhog.

    Closest I can come to that recipe would be using Prairie dogs, and they carry the plague. No Lemon wood in these parts either.
