    Default Pulling out of Almonds

    I was driving to San Diego yesterday through Bakersfield over the grape vine around 8 PM PSt and saw dozens of Bee trucks loaded with bee's exiting the Almonds. I saw Terra Bella, Oatley, Chapperal, Jims honey farm to name a few. I was so nice to see all the bee boxes going down the road. Wonder if they were headed home or to another flower bloom somewhere.

    The CA bees are beginning to arrive here in the southern blueberries. Sounds like they had a good bee season out west.. different from last year. I still do not understand how a 1 driver truck can get across the country that fast... must be a shortcut somewhere that I do not know about.

    I saw a hugely loaded semi heading east thru Montana today. The road he was on makes me suspect he was dodging scales:<}
