Oh no problem. I am sure you have been busy.  The bees are doing great! I already have 6-8 full combs in my top bar filled. I did have a couple questions. First, when can I stop giving them the sugar water? They seem really thirsty still and will drink about 800ml of the 1:4 solution in under a day. Second, should I go into by hive and place a blank bar between the already filled ones?

Thank you,

  The sat event was great. I always learn something new at each event.

As per our discussion about asking you to be my mentor, I would greatly appreciate

it if you could do that for me. I am available for any work,  training, etc. for bee

knowledge advancement.  I am a quick study and I absorb info like a sponge

soaks up water ( not bragging), but I do listen. Someone once said, "better to

keep mouth shut and have everyone think thee a fool, than to open mouth and

remove all doubt!!"  Now how's that for wisdom?!!! You can e mail me or call

on the phone.............Charlie................

No problem.

Craig thanks for the offer to help. I have a question for you regarding feeding. I haven't pulled off my feeder yet because I'm concerned there isn't enough nectar in Edgewood to really sustain them yet. I've just now started to see a few blossoms. What is your opinion?
