Bees installed

My two colonies died over winter so I had to buy two new packages.  These are 2 pounders from Lee Heine.  This is the latest I have ever installed bee packages.  Too bad, there are blossoms everywhere and it will take weeks for these colonies to build up and take advantage of them.  It will not be a big honey year.

On the way to pick up the bees in Watertown I checked on the 10th Ave Red Fife field.  It's coming up nicely, but a little thinner than I wanted.  It's raining again now and hopefully a few more will germinate.
