The Bees Came Through Winter In Good Shape

Susan has been in her beehives every week since the winter finally broke, and the bees are doing great.  She is manipulating them to discourage swarming, and if the rain lets up we should be seeing some persimmon honey come in soon.  We placed straw bales around the hives before the first cold snap last fall, and that seems to have protected the bees very well.
