Hi foxhound. I've read your blog and overall I like it.
If I may offer some constructive criticism, watch grammar and spelling. If you want people to take your insights and ideas seriously those simple things make a difference. If you have the option to go back and edit I would.
I like the simple layout very much and it renders nicely on my mobile device. Keep up the good work
Quite difficult matters can be explained even to a slow-witted man, if only he has not already adopted a wrong opinion about them; but the simplest things cannot be made clear even to a very intelligent man if he is firmly persuaded that he already knows, and knows indubitably, the truth of the matter under consideration. -Leo Tolstoy

Making sugar syrup with a guide to making it all seasons.

Also, gives you a guide to know how much 2:1 do you need to feed to get ____ frames of capped "honey" for winter.

Good luck to you both.

Thank you Annette. I always appreciate a kind word. Thanks for all you do on the forums for beekeepers.  This is a fun time of the year, I hope your bees get a great start.

I feel sort of bad I haven't been on the forum in a while. Past few years I have been slowing down in my life and haven't been as active. I still have hives, but only 1 or 2 now. This year I will be mentoring a new beekeeper in my neighborhood which should be fun.

Still get on to read here or there.

Take care

Make 5 gallons and 1 gallon of sugar syrup at a time with pre-marked 5 gallon buckets.

We did the sticky work for you.
