Heck yes that sounds good you may can kinda piggy back with him. Help and learn from him and he help too in your bees. Usally during the winter the forage is off anyway. Any you have enough stores for the winter on them or fed them up. Man Orange Honey I haven't went down for that in years not since the groves seem to have moved 50 miles or better south.
Go up the Citrus Tower now and hope to see an orange tree.
Where are you taking yours?
