With the winter mostly behind us, cabin fever has firmly set in. I was out to check the bees, on one of our rare warm days, and was surprised to see them already half way through the emergency sugarboard I left for them. I am assuming it was due to the unseasonably warm winter we have had. I quickly made up another batch, and slid in another large chunk of candy for the girls.
If you haven't been able to check on the bees yet, I would highly recommend doing so, as it could mean the difference between a live hive or a dead out come spring.
In the meantime, I will continue to read attend beekeeping meetings, and prep my woodenware as I await the warm days of spring and summer.
