We have had rain everyday since the 1st of May. Yesterday was the first day it was light enough and short enough to amount to anything... but the locust are blooming wonderfully. Maybe today the bees will get some...

I hope so for your sake Michael. Mother nature is just viscous sometimes. Other times generous.

They just opened up on tuesday here. Nothing last year.
We have had one day of rain here in the past six weeks. Not even 1/4". Been getting into the 40's every night this week, 39 tonight.
TF since 2010, successfully since 2013. Trying to increase without totally giving up honey crop.
