No, not a take off on Barry Manilow. I'm just talking about the bee's. It's always a worry about them making it through the winter. I think there is a saying about if they make it until the dandelions start blooming they will be ok.
Well, the dandelions are blooming and the bees look pretty vigorous.
I'm hoping to do better about putting the supers on at the right times instead of just one and leaving it until fall. From what I've read, I need to put the first one on about 2 weeks after the fruit trees start blooming, so probably around the first of April. Then we can add one every 2 - 3 weeks as long as they are drawing out comb and filling the last one. I think I would be pretty tickled to have just one extra super this year. Now that J has the bee suit maybe we can make that happen.
