What's the Buzz in the Beeyard?

Postby Nordak » Thu Feb 09, 2017 8:05 am

I was wondering if we could basically have a community chronicle of what's taking place in the various apiaries of the forum members here. Might be handy for keeping records in as well.
I rather enjoy reading about the experiences of others and I think it would be a good addition to the site. Anyone else interested?

Nice!

Do you think you can start a topic in the main forum about that?

Maybe the more ambitious keepers like you should have their own thread for continuity sake. We can follow each others progress and chime in when we find something interesting. It could be a bit of a record keeping thread for you that way. I put most of my progress reports in the expansion thread, but maybe the name of it should be changed.

I wonder if we could have a Eureka moments thread, those times when clarity comes about different aspects of beekeeping and success goes up. I think I could use some clarity about wintering bees about now.

I'll go post in a main thread area. If Solomon sees this, perhaps he could give it It's own heading if it seems popular enough.

It's been warm enough for the bees to fly most days lately. The Red Maples have budded and I expect them to bloom any day now. I won't open the hives for another two months...

You are waiting two months as a management decision or because you are too busy?

I AM too busy, but I would wait even if I wasn't.
