I hear ya Keith. I have a friend who often says you have to be thinking three months ahead of the bees. I haven't got the hang of that yet.

100 to 125 lbs of pollen a year? That's amazing. Makes me wonder how many bees a colony produces in a year and how much honey a colony produces and eats in a year. I bet someone can tell me. Are all those numbers about the same, since it takes a frame of honey and a frame of pollen to produce a frame of bees? Or so I have heard.
