  1. Re: The use of 48hr queen cells to spread resistant genetics

    How much jelly is left for the queen at arrival?

    Old enough? So very true. Old enough to know there is a great deal of waste. Old enough to know that a tax cut that pays for itself is a lie, and it did not take me 3 years to figure that out. Can I...

    About the shop itself.
    Shelterlogic stands up to snow loads here. Knock offs or their lighter weight lines probably would work. Much nicer way to build the permanent shop.

    I do not think that is the intent. If you have a 7 acre lot and your house is on it, then you are visibly not farming 7 acres.

    Most States and the Feds regard businesses as ripe for picking. In Maine any personal Property over 1K is taxable. I know of no Assessor brave enough to actually tax a lobster trap as a lot value.
