Spotty frost here on Oct.10 &11th. It killed soybeans across the road, but my tomatoes survived on both nights. I reduced entrances to 2" on all the hives on Oct. 8th. :thumbsup:
I was only two yrs. old at the time, so I don't recall the real price, but I'll guess $2.29 per package.
I'm a bit late, but I'll guess about $6.20 delivered. :D

M80's were great fun, but a 3 or 4" salute would make the babies in the crowd cry in short order......and they there were 4" & 5" salutes. You not only hear them...you felt them. :D

It's there, but her stripes run the wrong way. :D
Anchor them to something like these...available at ACE Hardware ... https://www.acehardware.com/departments/hardware/screws-and-anchors/anchors/70063
It would be nice to have empty drawn comb to give them and then feed, feed, feed...
