The Battle of the Bees
I'm flying out this afternoon on a week-long business trip to Newcastle. I figured I'd ask if there are any beeks here on the board.

I'd like to ask all Illinois beekeepers to make five phone...

More good news.

That's our argument.
Our senator checked that out before submitting our bill. We got some better coverage in a news article from this morning....
Mea culpa. My rant should be taken as a "vent' and not a personal attack against government officials or members of the media.
It's Illinois, they'll tax you on 4000 anyway. Mathematics in this state is distorted by glacial sediments left over from the last ice age (or something like that.)
Of course, that's not what...
It looks like we've stirred the hornets nest here in Illinois. The Illinois Department of Public Health has found themselves a friendly journalist after the honey bills passed out of both the House...

Agree with Merlyn. Give Mr. Whitehill a call at the Extension Office (620-272-3670).

The modified central leader methods works good for commercial operations. If you don't want to break out the ladder every time you're pruning, spraying, or picking then I would recommend pruning to...
Sundance, I did 100 pears the year before last. I've also done about 30 apples. I've had best success with whip grafts (80%).
For resources, I like this one:
