I'll pop in and say hi, even though my concept of morning is probably a bit different than yours since I work 12 hour night shifts...my day is half over already!

Since the hubby works 24 hour shifts and will be gone before I get home, for me the morning means getting home, releasing the chickens and ducks from their coop, feeding the goat kids, feeding the dog, cats, and rabbits, bathing (always an important step!)...and then searching the internet for tips on why one of our hives is struggling while the other is booming.  Any ideas?  One is a captured swarm, the other was a nuc box.  The Mr. knows, but he won't be home to explain and I'm impatient....

Hopefully then I can get some sleep before having to feed the goats lunch, but I know from experience that won't happen!  Smiley

You might want to begin a thread in the "general" section unless you have already. Supply as much info as possible so we have a clue to specifically what's going on with the weaker colony. BTW, welcome to Beemaster!

I haven't been online much lately.  Work has been very demanding and things around the home and farm haven't stopped either.  I've been spending every free moment on the tractor mowing pastures, even in the dark.  Hard to find time for that when you're working 11 and 12 hour days.  I did have a swarm move into a water meter box.  I hived them and they're in a five frame nuc getting accustomed to it.  I have some pics but haven't had a chance to post them for your viewing pleasure just yet.  Bee adventures have been few and far between this season.  Swarms have been almost non-existant in our corner of the world.  Don't know if I have a satisfactory explanation for that.  We've had some rain.  The bees are working horsemint right now.  Mesquite is starting to bloom and I see activity on the blooms again.  Might be a good honey year but, so far, not a good increase year.  A string of rural burglaries in our area has me beefing up the front gate and fence around it.  Putting in a  solar panel, battery and gate opener.  We currently keep our gate locked 24/7 and so far that is working.  Hope everyone else is having a good bee year.  Oh, and my neighbors are moving back to Missouri and I'm trying to buy their place.  Too much to do!

So hot down here folks some days its everything you can do to force yourself outdoors! Between removals & working on a new website haven't had much time to play. My wife and I may go to the movies again tomorrow, maybe, if  I don't have to work. Hope y'all are enjoying your summer.

Back in Feb Hardwood laughed at me when I said I could not see any way I could run out of equipment.

At the time I was waiting on ten packages and had 100 mediums ready to go. Well 5 months later with cutouts, trapouts, and swarms I am up to 25 hives and out of boxes shocked. Just finising up my last cup of coffee before I head out to make some more boxes/frames.

Well  we got our first frost of the season this morning. Not really a hard freeze,about 30 degrees.The sun is below the equator now so it was to be expected soon.
 It is a reminder for us Northern folks to be thinking about mouse guards and topping up the stores in the old beeboxes in the next two or three weeks if not done already.

It surprises me how fast summer goes by and fall sets in every year. I am not optimistic about the winter being as mild as last years.Hopefully I am being overly pessimistic.
Have a great day everyone!!!!                         Buzzbee

Frost already?   I hope we are a month or better away for that here.  Garden is making again with the fall rain and the goldenrod just has turned yellow.

we have been lucky so far.  no frost.  the rain has stayed off too.  tomatoes are taking their sweet time ripening and i'm afraid they are not going to get there.  maybe time to go whack the bushes and see if i can help them along....

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....
