Lots of hives, lots of bees. They are all thriving. My little orchard is simply abuzz these days. Spring is a lovely time of year. However, to adapt from the words of Tom Cruise, “I feel the need, the need to weed”.
I expect to get a December harvest from Daphne and Olive hives, and there may be a February or March harvest from the other two, but I would not expect any more than one super from such a new hive.
