@honeygirlgrows Gardeners are more attuned to their environment than most... and beekeepers (who inspect every 10-15 days), even more so. Gardeners take note — yet another reason to become a beekeeper!
Bees notice the nutritional shift (and make you aware of it), before even a gardener. What continually blows my mind however, is the major difference between my apiaries... even merely an hour away from one another.
The Malibu beehives can be headed toward a natural seasonal attrition, while hives in Laguna Beach andJoshua Tree have been starving for over a month. All the while, Camp Pendelton hives are stable, but in hand-to-‘mouth survival, and Venice Beach hives only one or two hours away from all — are bringing in non-stop honey, and growing in population, late into fall and winter.
Beekeeping across 4 counties has really taught me not to ever jump to any conclusions about another’s climate or what “should” be going on in another’s hives. (Private mentoring of Instagrammer beeks across the US also keeps me mindful of this!).
All year long it really blows my mind. So, before one assumes something is an “absolute truth” with bees or beekeeping, most often, we need to take into consideration not just climate — but, micro climates. ☄️🧠♀️
