Ours are liking the mustard weed flowers here in the mountains, too.  And my raspberry flowers!

We are still getting a fair amount of nectar up here in the mountains. The desert is very light. My mountain hives are filling up for Winter it seems. I think it is mostly Sunflowers.

Foragers still bringing in quite a bit of pollen here...nectar, not so much.

Well, I don't get home until 0930 Friday morning, so it will be around 11 or so.

I am close if you need a hand, let me know what time you plan on doing it.

Hello all, I will be moving a trap hive in Mayhill, more than likely on Friday, and will need a hand because it is high up and heavy. Any takers?

Checked mine and they have indeed built up a lot of comb (with feeding) and a fair amount of sealed honey.  Mine certainly can't be described as "packed", but the center of town in Deming hasn't got the best bee forage.  Think I need to move them out to some alfalfa fields.

Checked today and all is well.  Thanks Rob & Betsy!  Ours seem to be happily feeding on mustard weed, raspberries and wild sunflowers.

Not sure what is in season right now, but last week some sort of flow turned on and my hives quit taking feed. Now they are packed with stores! You guys might want to check your hives if you haven't for a while.
