Pretty close to exactly my hopes. 20 not 40. 40 would be too big a jump for my experience level and time constraints. I hope to overwinter 2-4 of my current 4 hives and split them early into 5-frame nucs, then split the resulting hives. I went from one caught swarm last May to 5 hives, so this should be achievable. Currently working on building the nucs.For me this is going to be the year of the nucs. I am currently building 40 nuc boxes. My goal is to start with two nucs and to keep splitting them as much as possible. I will also break one of my hives down into 4 nucs. The end goal will to be to build as many double strong nucs as I can to overwinter.The goal is to over witer 20 double deep nucs.
Good luck with the BSN. My son was an EMT for many years and got his RN this past summer. He works cardiac at a large Richmond hospital and loves it. He too hopes to continue with a BSN or even a MSN?I also hope to get my BSN (Bachelor's Degree in Nursing) completed, and of course continue working my full time job as a cardiac nurse.
