He's probably been busy commercial fishing.

Good summer Jeff, crazy hot, picked a nice pile of blueberries and started over again with 8 nucs. Was wondering how you made out with your bees?

8 nucs will make a lot of hives next year, Good Luck!

Was too cool out here during the flow to make much honey. And also I had to split my only hive because the airlines refused to ship my bee packages last spring.
Was a good berry crop here. I like to think my bees had something to do with it.



F.C. Fishing was pretty good. But fish and game don't give us enough fishing time, letting millions go by for escapement while we have to fumble with dipnets instead of our gill nets wasting time while they pass. And the upriver fishermen use fish wheels, and fish 24 hrs a day, seven days a week. We were also supposed to be able to sell incidental kings this year and last year, but they shut it down after the first fish were sold. Sadly upriver roe strippers, and upriver politics run the fishery down here.

Well you asked smile

Yep, I know everyone in Saint Mary's is frustrated with the dipnets and openers too.

A few more pictures of my summer beekeeping.






















I wonder how Chickenminer made out with his packages this summer.

Any other Alaska Bee Keepers on here, feel free to chime in.

You think your bees have improved your Berry picking spots?

Hey Jeff... I see one of your girls packing a load of blue fireweed pollen in those photos.

Not a good year here in Eastern Interior. Was way to wet and cool this summer.
Just now getting around to extracting but so far only 3 gallons out of two hives.
One hive of Buckfast bees to take care of yet but not expecting much from it either.

Always next year! At least no trouble with bears ... my electric fence did its job.

I know they pollenate the berries here, I can pick all I want within walking distance of my house, and see them on the flowers every year.

Here they are on the salmonberry flowers.



Cranberry



Mountain Raspberries.



Blueberry

Yea we get some cool colors of pollen frames, the blue Fireweed pollen is pretty cool.

Glad you were able to keep the bears away, I didn't turn on my fence this year, hope I don't regret it.
And good you got some honey. I have my eye on a couple of frames, of fireweed honey they put away I might grab them yet.
Going to try over winter this year?
Was wet and cool here the whole flow, bummer for sure.

My girls are heavy into the goldenrod right now, you can smell it 20 yards away as you approach the hives, they are coming in packed heavy with the yellow pollen.
