    My dream vacation would be to head out to the almond groves for a few weeks to see all the action. I would even work for someone just to be in the midst of it! Lots happening in Cali
    But its so hard to pull up anchor from the farm, if Im not digging through hives, Im running a field tractor or calving cows

    The man had a way with words, didn't he? Seemed a bit sneaky to co-opt them for a truck commercial but it was still Paul Harvey.

    do you think bees do better in blue boxes ?

    Keith I noticed you are almost completely color co-ordinated, blue boxes, blue coveralls, blue syrup tank......handy with a welder too by the looks of the tank
    Now after all these platitudes can we talk about a discount on my Nutra bee order...how about you eat the freight

    Ian & Irwin, you sure you live up in Canada, your sounding more American to me.

    Irwin, yes, I used to weld in my early days it comes in handy when building syrup tanks,wax tanks, pollen sub blending tanks & so on. I have been lucky to have gotten these gifts.

    Thank you for posting that shot Ian, it's wonderful. Wife is from the prairies. At times we get into the mode of 'maybe we should pull up stakes and move out to the praries'. That photo of your kids in the snowbank, was just what the doctor ordered, cured that talk for this year

    Our bees were flying yesterday, and, it looks like the hazelnuts are gong to start anytime now. A couple of the hives are brooding seriously, I peeked inside on monday. If this weather keeps up, we will have supers on for the maples, and carving out some splits, before you guys are taking them out of the shed.

    Well, if you dont make it to California, but do get out here to the island sometime, I'm pretty sure there's a few extra plates in the cupboard to set at the dinner table.
