Sounds like a good trade to me... I'll have to figure out what I can swap with you to consult me on my orchard- the last two years have been an exercise in finding creative ways to fail.Just so it happened, I scored 100 pounds of fondant for free (well, for the cost of an hour of apple tree pruning consultation).
Speaking of failure...
Thanks for your feedback, MSL. To be fair, I took quite a bit of liberty with his approach and I am in a little warmer climate than he, so less than stellar results might have been expected. I do however take solace in the sentiment that Thomas Edison once famously deadpanned, ‘Results! Why, man, I have gotten a lot of results! I know several thousand things that won’t work.’That was my sense of it, but your source seemed solid enuff I decided not to challenge it as I don't do a lot of it
for me anyway, liquid feed for as late in the year as you can, I want feed in the combs we it belongs.
MT camp /sugar blocks/fondant put on later as an insurance policy on lighter hives
