The longest day of the year and I was and am pulling empty supers and putting feed on! My bees have virtually no reserves at a time when the flow should be starting strong. The clover is starting and the top blossom on the alfalfa is purple, but the bees are not yet making a living. Talked to a nephew in North Dakota who knows a bee inspector in North Dakota who says many hives he is currently inspecting are on the edge for food supply. Something more to think about in the still frozen north.
