The good news is that it's warm enough that Trish can enjoy doing woodworking in the garage again, and she's been building some beehives. If you're near the Seattle area and looking for a handmade Warre hive to use this spring, let us know. She's making the hives from pine and finishing them with EcoFin, a soy-based nontoxic stain.
Haven't seen any bees out and about, so it can't really be near spring yet, can it? Has anyone seen a bee lately?
