    Velbert, I have a hive still going with heritage from your queens I installed on 7/10/09. Four years is real good in my untreated cemetery apiaries. Purvis and Koehnen led hives from that same month are long gone. Any queens from you available now?

    Nice Velbert.

    I my last batch for the year/virgins were placed by 8-8. I was going to do a few more, but I feel winter coming in the air. Horses are getting their winter coats, days are getting shorter, mornings are crisp.

    Have my queen rearing stuff all clean and packed away...my husband is happy to have the kitchen counter back in human use and clean, LOL

    Amazing how much more time I have now. Just in time to haul some hay and do some canning. Got to find my bow and camping gear too. How fast the year goes by.

    I don't know Velbert, I may grab a frame of eggs/young larvae and split a round of cells, but it's getting late but better to get something now in case the worst happens during winter.

    It can't hurt to try, unless you have an early archery tag! Dang, what a dilemma...Hope your last batch turns out excellent, JRG13.
    Good luck, Laurie. Good work, Ollie. Good night, Johnboy....oops! I'm showing my age.
