    Re: Goldenrod and whats it worth.

    Last year fall was good here also. There is a lot of goldenrod getting ready to go. Not sure if it is going to be like last year though.

    Re: Goldenrod and whats it worth.

    The two lower deeps look good. This hive has done well all year. It had three supers and I took two. All three were fully capped two weeks ago.

    Re: First ever extraction today

    I took off the rest of what I could today. I could not take 4 supers due to brood in them. I got a full bucket today, my third for the year. I am done for this year.

  6. Re: Long range forcast for another nasty cold winter in central-southeast states, rat

    I was born and raised in the mid west. I have never seen such a cool summer as this year. I am afraid we are in for another long and extremely cold winter. I plan to add extra insulation to my hives.

    Re: First ever extraction today

    They actually have some nectar in some sells and just a few capped cells already. Any problem with storing the way they are?

    Re: First ever extraction today

    Thanks all, I pulled the supers today after letting them clean them up. Simply amazing! After two days they have repaired all of the comb on every frame. All looks new and ready to store goods.

    Re: Is this goldenrod pollen?

    Don't know but my girls are binging it in also, although they have been bringing in bright orange pollen off and on most of the year.

    Re: is this some kind of scam?

    Look at the spelling, you should not even respond to emails like this. That will confirm they found an active email address. I work in IT and see this all the time. Scam.
