    How does a beekeeper know when the beekeeping season is drawing to a close?

    Answer: When the flow of posts in "The Lighter Side" starts to build up. :lol:

    That's probably very true....I will experience my first winter with all you here sharing the same cabin fever and dreams of a new season...

    D3, Dave will be carrying a hive into the living room just to warm it enough to open and get his fix. :D

    Heh, I've been more than tempted to bring a hive inside sometimes. I miss my ladies over winter!

    I'mma try to keep busy working on new equipment, brewing mead and *possibly* hosting a series of beekeeping classes over winter.

    Beekeepers are the only addicts I don't feel sorry for them.

    Ha! Iddee, I already thought about doing that. It's going to be tough.

    G, you are most correct. I want to take my time and build a nice garden hive with a copper roof.

    So is it the bees or the keep that suffer thru separation anxiety:???:. My ulterior motive to becoming a keep, was to give me a solid reason to spend time with my folks ( little did I know my mom was going to bring the family closer together ) So it looks like it's time to head to the saw mill and get a couple hundred board feet of pine and explain to dad why we need to build 10 or 15 hives for next year:mrgreen:

    I do some of my most costly bee catalog shopping during the winter months-online ordering is way too easy!

    yep cabin fever is a bad thing for a keep, short cold days and nights with no bees to open and poke around in, no honey to harvest or cells to put in nucs, ooooooooooooooo wait thats you guys up north not me:rolling::yahoo::Dancing: I just keep posting pics and doing removals and such (keeps Perry occupied while he is snowed into his house till spring thaw).
