There comes a time when you need a realization check. Handling a larger number of hives with only a 1/2 ton pickup truck and a small 10 foot trailer and your back, maybe 2 backs. I can't afford to go buy a bobcat and 2 ton flatbed truck right now, but I can afford the hives to fill it right now. Unless you are very fortunate, bees in Fl. have to be moved to get 2 honey crops if the weather cooperates and citrus is chancy anyway. I made myself a 5 year bee business plan last year on hive counts, expenditures, and income. The hive counts are exceeding, expenditures are exceeding and of course income is far behind after the late freezes. Any input appreciated.
