Well Bjorn Ill tell you how Jon did it. Suddenly leave town on business and leave hastey instuctions. But start with something fun, like "queens cells are going to hatch tomorrow in the big hive, so you'll need to..." Trust me, she will thank you for it... when she lets you back in the house.

irwin, i was feeding up until this week when our weather changed.  it's been so mild and the bees have been active with nothing to bring in.  now that the rain and cold are back, i have quit for the year.

check your stores.  mine were using theirs up.  yours may still have plenty.

 Well Bjorn, you aren't doing something right. My wife will do a lot of things for me just to get me out of her hair. Oh yeah, probably those dozen red roses Tues. for our 31st anniversary helps.
 Sorry I can't help you up there Irwin, I am pulling mine in off the frost bit goldenrod (a week ago) and putting them here at my house to get the Dec/Jan Maple/Willow bloom. A deep & med combo I moved tonight was too heavy for me by myself.  I hope the rest I have to move are that way.
