Howdy from Oregon, Ive been a hobbyist for 10 yrs. 7 of those were in Montana, and 3 here in the Willamette. it has been a wonderful lesson in zonal beekeeping. I'm thankful to have found this forum, this is a great learning tool.

welcome.  there are a bunch of us from the PNW on here.  several from Oregon.  what part of that valley are you in?

not bad.  mostly berries, wild and cultivated.  a little higher up and you get more of the fireweed.

Good to see others in the Vally. I know of several in the Yamhill County area. Guess Wine Country can also be Bee country too.
