Hi, My name is Brad Raspet and I have 24 honey bee colonies sprinkled around Skagit County in the Northwest part of Washington State. We are half-way between Seattle, WA & Vancouver, Canada. I'm just starting my 4th year as a beekeeper, and having fun! :^)

I'm currently secretary of our local beekeepers club - Skagit Valley Beekeepers Association. I'm interested in sharing ideas and current practice in regards to keeping our bees healthy and happy...

Brad do you get pollen off those jillion tulips/dafodils et cetera?  Your soil amazes me.  Does anyone ever get stuck in those fields?  I saw them driving in standing water.

No, tulips bloom in April... bees are bring in maple tree & dandelion pollen about then. I suppose people get stuck in the mud upon occasion but I've only been stuck once and I've moved most of my hives out of ag-land, seem to do better in the foothills. :^)
