I was blessed with transition leave, upon retiring from the USAF, and found myself with lots of free time on my hands. So, I decided to intern with Mike Palmer in Vermont for 2 weeks. I arrived April 25th in St Albans Vermont. April 26th, began pulling frames for nucs Mike was selling to about 200 customers. April 27th--it began to snow & French Hill got one foot of the white stuff. April 28th--power went out for 36 hours--welcome to spring in Vermont. April 29th until May 6th, we worked our off reversing and supering. I have a newfound appreciation of what commercial beekeeping is all about.
Than ks Mike for the good times, the education and the memories!
