Quick Update

I know it's been like forever, but I'm still around and kicking. Just did a short interview over the weekend about beekeeping and TBHs. Now for the bad news: the colony that I cut out from the church was upended by the April 27th tornado and never recovered. The good news: my house did not get upended like most of my neighbors. Everything around was pretty much totalled and my home did suffer damage, but all was not lost. I may post some pics later, but most of you probably already know what it looked like after the EF4 plowed through Tuscaloosa. I am truly thankful to be able to continue this blog - so bear with me and I'll try to get back at it next spring!

First Spring Inspection for 2011

I looked into the hive a couple weeks ago. Looks good! I'll try to get a report with a vid soon.

Spring Upon Us

My favorite time of the year is just in sight! I can feel the warm sun, see the buds and blooms, smell the earth, hear the sounds of new life. It's a new season. A new start. A busy time for all who care to be. A great time to make the most of this window of opportunity!

The bees from the cutout have been working good. I'll have to check 0n them and see how this cold winter (by Southern standards) has affected them. They're bringing in pollen, so that tells me the queen is stepping up production of a new work force to start this season.

Thank the Lord for Spring!
