It has been the same 'ole, same 'ole here, just out working in the bees. The horrible winds have me worried about the last group of cells. The virgins needs some nice weather to get out to visit the boys. It has been nasty. Could hardly sleep last night with the wind gusts of what was said to be around 29 mph. I wonder if it didn't get higher at our place. My worker bee "Josh" (technically a drone ;) ) was supposed to arrived tomorrow night but looks like he is so excited to get here that he left earlier than expected and will come in tonight. Today's job is checking cell builders and some nucs for progress. The palo verde is just starting to bloom here. Mesquites have little buds on them. Now if I could just convince Mother Nature to be kind with that wind........don't want her drying out the flowers! I also have been working on another bee article, should be finished in the next few days. Getting ready for Arivaca Farmer's Market and my once a month garbage run tomorrow. We are excited......one of our "barn cats" just had kittens. She had them in a brush pile. As she relaxes from the ordeal (her first litter). We will go in an give her a helping hand. Until then lots of canned food for momma kitty. We will keep some of the kittens and the others are already spoken for. A gentleman picked up some nucs yesterday and gifted me a sweet wooden nuc that he designed in his woodworking shop..........can't wait to test it out! Thanks Henry!
