Re: Southbound 2012
Done (at least for a little while). We finished the last round through the last beeyard for 2012 today. We were already in the South so we didn't have to go Soutbound. We run for honey from fixed locations in NC. Its been an instructive year with more swarms than normal, more queen problems than normal, and less nectar than normal. We are glad to put 2012 in the rear view mirror and are looking forward to putting our paid-for lessons to good use in 2013. Its warm enough to start putting on more pollen sub but I think I am going to leave the bees alone until January 2, 2013. Hunting season is 70% gone and I haven't been once but there's three weeks left in the deer and bear seasons and I plan to start looking for Bambi and Yogi tomorrow.
