BIG SAVINGS. Some of the suppliers of the basics are currently running specials and free shipping for large orders, meaning there are deals to be had prior to the end of the year. Please email me at:
if you are interested in ordering hives, frames, foundation, and hive bodies now for a spring installation. Those saving also translate into saving for established hives (both garden and 10-frame), with bees, ordered now and installed in spring. I know it's hard to think so far in advance, but don't forget that you will be germinating your vegetable seeds indoors in 45 days and hardening them off in 90. Spring will be here before we know it!
Pray for the wintering bees.....
