Had a great meeting yesterday. We were briefed on some exciting activities going on surrounding building 31 on the Olmsted County Fairgrounds. Improvments that will allow the balcony area in building 31 (Floral Hall) which has been closed for nigh on 2 decades to be open to the public once more. The Friends will help promote awareness of this project through social media and will highlight it during grahamfest on Saturday May 19th.

ewes in FebruaryPretty mild weather for early February. With temps running in the low 30’s the ewes are almost overdressed. Some of the ewes are starting to get a little wider. Lambing is only about 5 weeks away. Side note: I need to get a hay feeder built for them. 1 more thing for the list.

989. Cost of winter

No Comments »

I had 6 colonies and lost one in the early winter during a cold spell. Now I have 1 more dead. The other 4 had been taking syrup and pollen replacer but this 1 did not. Stubborn, but if they will not take the feed their is only so much you can do. On the bright side I have drawn comb and some honey that can be used to feed new packages this spring.
