  1. Re: I need tips for selling honey at farmers market

    It might not apply to all markets... But move your vehicle somewhere else.

    Clover all over

    I travel a lot for work, and having spent a good deal of time on the highways in SD, IA, MN & NE I can say I have never seen so much clover in the ditches. Miles & miles of yellow, white & red.

    Re: My Bees died over the winter :(

    We were below zero for too long. The bees were all head first in the cells, 2 inches from a new patch of honey.

    What was the name of the documentary? I have a few Hutterite friends, but they don't keep bees. Other colonies in the area do, so I'll try and find out.
