Welcome, Karl! How are your bees doing this year? And, how many hives do you have? :)

Does not concern the bee;
A clover, any time, to him
Is aristocracy.

Luvin Honey: Have 10 hives this year and here in the S.E. part of Wisconsin . Cool spring then very dry conditions seem to have put a stop to production. Most of my hives have only one medium on. Very much different from last year when my best hive had 6 supers.

Karl, welcome to our forum, so glad that you have found us.  Stick around, we love new members, we love to listen, and I bet you will have many tales, stories and experiences you will have to share with us.  New members are a wonderful thing, and that is what helps to make our forum go round.  I am as you, I have some hobbies, and they include my 08, orange and black H.D. Nightster, my Husband has an 04 Fatboy, this bike all souped up from our Son-in-Laws, that love him to pieces.  They keep taking his bike for rides, coming back a little later than expected (like a week or so), with all kinds of cool stuff done to it, amazing how it has transformed over these years, smiling.  I also have a 15 year old and 10 year old Grandson, they are the other loves of my life.  Nice to have you here.  Have that most wonderful day, to love and live, to share, with great health.  Cindi
