I hope you had a good Christmas and a very good New Year. It is time to start looking toward the next bee season. If you have not checked your bees, then you may want to the next warm day we have. I checked my bees last week and found that they have eaten most of their food. So you may want to get some winter patties or make some candy for your bees.

This is also the time of year to get caught up on cleaning, painting and building equipment for next year.

Thanks and see you at the meeting.
