    Hi Olive,
    Did all you're hives survive the big flood? Last I heard you where concerned a few might go down river.

    You haven't made it through the year until your bees are alive and well in spring.

    Does :P mean what I think it does?

    Because we are namesakes, I will let it slide this time, Oliver.

    Glad to hear that you had a good year, it’s great to see young women getting into beekeeping. It’s something I point out to kids in the schools I give beekeeping presentations to. That beekeeping is not an all male sport. Keep learning and pass it on.

    Happy New Year to you & your bees. So Far So Good.
    Can you tell me about the source of your bees?

    I purchased my bees in nucs from Green Honey Farms...i found it a lot easier as a new beekeeper to work with an established colony
