The temperature today is supposed to be around 40' today and I am going to go out and look at the hives. Yep, just look at them. A few brave souls might fly around, but mostly the bees will stay in. I am getting cabin fever right about now and want to get my hands in the hives and get my garden started, but there is still about 12 inches of snow covering the garden and the bees are staying in.
I will have to assuage my longing for spring with a few bee magazines and some seed catalogs. Sigh.
We are sold out for the current season. If you are interested in hearing about honey for sale later this summer, please email me.
