Guess what I am doing
« on: December 12, 2013, 07:01:19 pm »
:D  yep thats it, harvesting honey the  few days, should only be a few 100 lbs and the last 1 of the season, it gets dark fast this time of year so can only do a little each day late in the afternoon, (pokes Perry with a stick to see if he is frozen solid yet) :lol:

jb is hard to say these days but cone-o-bees will always be 1 of the favorite hives, other hives like the 1 removal from the birthing center had 136 lbs of honey in it and is building back up nice in a hive box now is going to be up there on the list of good 1s, just going to have to wait and see this next season what 1 takes the top spot.

Must be nice to have rain and flowers and warm in the winter. I'm wishing for anything to come in bloom to distract hive 3 from its robbery attempts.

But I ain't as cold as Perry!
