  1. Re: Goldenrod blooming in Central to West Michigan

    I drove from Minneapolis Minnesota to Flint Michigan and marveled at all the Goldenrod blooms on the trip. Seems Wisconsin and Indiana had more than Michigan, but we're getting there!

    Re: a little tip on sealing ply-wood boxes

    You could, theoretically, replace a super every year and be out nothing but a weekend of woodworking instead of watching re-runs of "Friends."

    Good job!

    Re: Another harvesting question

    What's the purpose of freezing those frames? Wouldn't sealing them in a plastic tub and storing them in a basement suffice? ::: shrug :::

    Re: Goldenrod honey value

    My first experience with Fall GR was last year.
    I, too, thought the smell was great. I didn't equate it to sweaty socks at all.
    I'm willing to ship a pair of mine for anyone to compare. :D

    That's what I experienced last year after the dearth. The soybean blossoms were a wonderful sight and then the GR started and the pollen/nectar really came in.

    Re: Denver area honey color in 2014

    We took 100 pounds or so this year from two hives that gave us really light colored honey.
    It's apparently from the Linden tree nectar, as it was very minty tasting!
    I sold some honey and MOST...

    Re: Brood in honey supers?

    I found an odd arch the size of my fist today, at the bottom of one of my medium honey frames. It looked like the bees uncapped the honey that WAS there and had a buffet, but upon closer inspection,...

    Re: Drones got the boot!

    I watched drones go in and out yesterday, like it was the thing to do.

    Last year around this time, I was rejoicing when the soybeans bloomed. This year, the bees only slowed a little (instead of a...

    They're not interested in the soda. They don't care what flavor it is, if it's flat, or even if it's old.
    They want the sugar!
