Here in NY, and much of the Northeast, we have had some horrendous weather the last two months. July had three days w/out rain, over 6 inches and June wasn't much better. Both months were colder than usual. Then August 1st we had one inch of rain. Since then it has been more like summer is supposed to be, not too rainy and 80s, almost 90s. And we're finally getting some nectar coming in faster than the bees can eat it. I'm not predicting a good crop, but I'm hopeful that there will be enough honey so I don't have to buy any to keep my customers buying from me. What's happening where you are? What has your summer been like so far? rast, you're feeding, aren't you? Techumseh, what about you? Bumper crop yet? Any sourwood ther Iddee? I imagine that Bjorn is in a similar boat to mine?
