South Dakota honey
« on: June 24, 2011, 10:21:34 PM »
Here's a quick look at what the bees are working up here. This was shot more than a week ago just before the clover really opened up...the fields are a lot more yellow now!

SD intro.MPG

There's also a good bit of alfalfa blooming. Now if we can only convince the farmers not to mow too quick!

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

Bud, I ain't scared of deep supers...that's what I use mostly too. I'm just hoping that I don't come into this as the young, strong and incredibly handsome man that I am and leave all broken and crippled!  :-D

Hi Scott,

We're glad to see that you're still alive!   :-D  Enjoyed the videos!

I wish that we had all of that clover down here. The Cabbage Palms are just now starting to bloom.

Later, Larry

Thanks ya'll! I've got other videos "in the can" but I'm using a new computer up here and haven't gotten the hang of the new editing software yet. There's one that shows a cut out from a 5 frame nuc that a swarm moved in to while the bees were working the almonds. There were actually two different nucs that caught swarms. I showed Bryan (from the video above) how to cut out the first one and then he showed Zach how on the second.

Peggy and the Bminator (shortened from SHBminator...my son Ian) are doing removals in FL in my absence and I wish I had left the camera with them so that I could watch them...I'm just so proud!

Goodness, miles and miles of that stuff all in bloom.   Sourwoods will be drying up soon and we will be dry until goldenrod.   No wonder yellow clover makes so much honey.

last video I looked at you were in FL.  Do you move your hives during the year?
