End of January is here and Almonds are around the corner. Got the Dr to release me to Lite duty so I can at least get things going. I am heading to Fl to help get the bees ready for FBF to be in Ca by the 12th. By the time I get back my helper will have the candy read to put on the Producion Hives to ramp up brood production. More brood means more splits and more mating nucs and if strong enough they will take advantage of the Maple Bloom.
