It is April 30th and I am worried. There is still snow on the ground and Worth and I need to put an electric fence up before the bees arrive in about two weeks. We are weekend, want-to-be beekeepers and our time is limited by work commitments and distance to our site. We head off to the Ranch. There is even more snow here and, afraid that we won’t make it in to our bee site without getting stuck, we walk our materials in.
