Last year, I had a record high yield. This year, a record low. Ahhhh–agriculture! There are a LOT OF EVENTS in August that need your help. The beekeepers of Colorado WILL BE participating in the CDA’s Agriculture Pavilion this year! || National Honey Bee Day is August 16th. The theme this year is “Sustainable Gardening begins with Honey Bees”. || Western Apicultural Society (WAS) Conference: University of Montana in Missoula from September 17-20, 2014. || September is National Honey Month. || Feds to Phase out Neonicotinoids in NW Wildlife Refuges–makes you wonder how they ever got to a refuge in the first place…Time to move the program east!
Swarm season is officially over although there will still be a few stragglers. In celebration, I am leaving town today through the 9th of July. Have a wonderful Independence Day celebration. Marvel at all of the US successes and work towards correcting its shortcomings. The United States is US in more ways than one!
