Rick , how are your new packages doing? I get mine this Sat and its suppose to rain, my luck again. They really set me back this spring being 2 wks late. Spring is really early this year and very dry for April, we do need the rain.
Ours have not started yet, I'm outside of Louisville......I have about 20 trees on our farm. I've been checking them. It does seem a bit early. I believe our trees bloomed around the first week of May last year. Good luck with the honey.
I've been feeding to get my numbers up for a good haul of black locust. I need about one more week for buildup. They are up in the second deeps, but only about three frames. I'm going to reduce one hive down to one hive body and put on Ross rounds.....hopefully I'll get them filled.
