Project Planning and the Wait

It’s been bitterly cold in Michigan. The big blizzard has gone through and has left us with a bunch of snow.

But the forecast is looking good. They are saying it will get up into the upper 30’s this Sunday. When it gets up above freezing during the day the sap starts flowing in the sugar maples. It’s almost time to start tending the sugar bush.

My sugar bush planning is sadly lacking this year. I’ve been spending all of my pondering time on honeybees.

I’ve got good news! My outyard funding project has been successful, and it’s well over the goal I set! Thank you so much to everyone who has contributed!

So I’ve been pouring over bee supply websites and looking for the best deals I can find on all the items I’ll need for the project. I’ve been tallying all of the costs for the rewards that are built into the Kickstarter system too.

In a few weeks the ordering can begin. Then I’ll be spending all of my time looking out the window for the delivery trucks.
