    "We are all working very hard, and all trying to make a living at the same time"

    Well that was cool. I quoted myself!

  3. Re: Paramount Farms buying out beekeepers?

    Re: If Not Almonds...

  16. Re: Bees no Longer Required to Pollinate Almonds.

    Maybe we should have our own booth this year at the Almond Board Conference and convince them that the pollen does a much better job when placed INSIDE the hive?
