You haven't made it through the year until your bees are alive and well in spring.

Does :p mean what I think it does?

Because we are namesakes, I will let it slide this time, Oliver.

Glad to hear that you had a good year, it’s great to see young women getting into beekeeping. It’s something I point out to kids in the schools I give beekeeping presentations to. That beekeeping is not an all male sport. Keep learning and pass it on.

:p means pink smily with tongue sticking out.
Thanks for the clarification Perry :)

Can you tell me about the source of your bees?
Thanks,
Ernie
I purchased my bees in nucs from Green Honey Farms...i found it a lot easier as a new beekeeper to work with an established colony :)
