This blog explains how I keep bees. It works for me, it might not work for you. Use my methods at your own risk. Always wear protective clothing and use a smoker when working bees.

Bloomimg Flowers

I have been working in Chaska lately. The drive to and fro has given me time to scan the ditch for flowers in bloom.
 Yesterday I saw some Bird's FootTrefoil blooming. Today there was a very small amount of yellow sweet clover starting up.
These plants will spread across the metro.
An old adage that the main nectar flow starts 10 days after the first clover blooms
 spotted. That put the nectar flow at least in Chaska at around July 1st.

Supers should be on now or in the very near future.
