Looks like some bees overwintered and they are enjoying the fireweed now.

I had a shrew infestation before I got my mouse screen in last fall and they killed all four hives and a nuc last winter. They eat the heads and stress them all winter and made a mess.

I started two new double queen packages in April, and split them four ways, and then made a nuc a couple of weeks ago with a mail order Saskatraz queen so I am back in business with five hives.

I wont make that mistake again.

What do you use the stick with the water bottles for in the fish picture?

You pick them hard? How do you ripe them? We wait until they are ripe here but they squish and it takes a long time to fill a bucket

They are just opening up here some of the hard one's pop right out if the leaves are open. The ones that aint open I leave. Its a little more work but like them a little hard, they dont freeze into a bag of mush then and hold their shape a bit.

I picked five quarts today. Alot more to ripen in the next few days I will go back and pick again.

Going to take some kids from church picking berries on Wednesday. I love salmon berry aguduk. Called cloud berries in other parts.

Early on the akpit. Not ready here until early August. Your ones develop earlier than ours. Will think about what you said about early picking but most people don't pick here until more ripe.

We went looking for some last week, found some, none were ready. May try again this week before baseball practice, might even let the brats ride the minibikes!


Rumors of my assimilation have been greatly exaggerated.
