Robo, Mikel has really long arms too, and it fits him well. He's about 6' and rangy, maybe 160?? but I am bad at guessing volumes so that may be way off. He got a medium I believe and likes it.
Hi Kathy! We have had a really busy summer with jobs and our community arts group and friends' weddings etc. It seems like it has been non-stop since June! I am just not on the computer on the weekends like I used to be. I am always lurking at work, but can't always post :). In emergencies, I've been calling Iddee! :-D The bees seem to be doing ok. The splits are still small, and I probably should combine them, but I am going to try and nurse them through. I'll probably post some pics from one of them in a bit. I'm feeding them up and am going to try and baby them through winter. The swarm from Buds is bursting and full and I feel pretty good about them, if they don't eat everything up before spring. :) They all seem healthy, if the splits are building a little slower than I would have liked. We didn't have much flow at all this fall :(. Thanks for asking! :)
Is it still raining in Oregon? Ya'll didn't seem to have much of a summer at all. How are your hives doing?
