It's a Wrap 2011
I also added a new link, The Bad Beekeeper's Blog. Ron Miksha, located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, writes a humorous but informative blog about his experiences with his Summit Gardens Honey Farm. In Ron's words, his site is "largely editorial and sometimes recklessly presented. If you strongly disagree with anything you find here, send Ron a note - or keep reading as you are likely to find he also advocates an opposite view-point elsewhere in his blog."
Update: I used a fish scale and a lever to get an estimate of the weight of each hive. #1 looks in pretty good shape at about 117 lbs. #2, though, is much lighter, coming in at about 88 lbs. At this point, with cold weather coming on, I think I'll discontinue feed now but will be looking to feed early in the spring, probably with some pollen patties of some sort.
