Went into my hive week before last to find out how they wintered. They were pretty much out of stores but had fresh nectar and pollen coming in and a few frames of brood each. I added some winter patties then.
We have had a few cold frost night this week but as I looked at the calendar I decided to feed them today. Both hives got more winter patties and a pollen pattie as well.
Maple is pretty well the only game in town right now but by early to mid April we should have dandelion and autumn olive bloom hitting as long as the weather continues to warm. If not I guess I'm in for a bit of feeding to keep them going after they build up on what I have given them.
