Hey Guys, my apologies for not getting back to you all - I really appreciate your thoughts and input! good news! I was able to find a farmer who has a crop of canola that is a late flowerer - the crop itself is starting to finish up but there's still about 100 acres of flowers and, with this cooler weather and a little rain, there's possibly going to be another slight flush of flowers. So all of my hives are sitting on that at the moment and, hopefully, enjoying it! It's probably only got two weeks left in it but it buys me a little time to find something else to move them to after that's finished... so now the homework begins
thanks again everybody!
