Today was a pleasant day for January, sunny and in the upper 30's. There isn't any snow on the ground to speak of, and I have help to move hives because my college kids are home on Christmas break. So, we decided to just move the hives now to a new location...twenty three miles away. Yes, that is a little inconvenient, but the alternative is to just quit beekeeping. The owners of the property where my hives now sit are very excited about having beehives on their property.
