    Default Broccoli!

    Well, we've had frost, cold, snow, sleet and generally miserable weather, and yesterday the sun came out and it got up over 50F. A few of the girls were out on the broccoli I let go to flower. I can't stress enough what a boon the broccoli has been. Just don't pick a head when there's a dearth, and bingo! Flowers!

    On the down side, there was no activity from one of my hives. I hope they are okay.

    I'm still getting alot of bee's on my Broccoli the bolted. Now we have a bunny too(kids) so he gets some now since he loves the stuff.
    My broccoli has been great his year except 1/3 bolted early but cut it back and in filled in nicely.
    Hope the girls are ok?

    Got a little warmer yesterday, and I saw a few of the girls venturing out from the "no activity" hive. Looks like it just takes a little warmer temps to get them out and about. They had good stores last time I checked, but I combined a weak colony with them late in the year. Will trust to the fates and the bees to survive the winter. Thanks for the interest, Zane!
