I was out on friday puting pollen patties and caspian solution on the hives. as you recall i had given them sugar about 2 weeks ago before i left to cuba. well, these bees on average are covering 7 frames, are active, healthy, and brooding. Out here the hazel nuts are out already because it's just been so mild, close to a month earlier than usual. soon the cedar and alder will be out. it's happening man, just down right awsome.
