Glad to hear things are going well at your end! Out here in Ohio they’ve not yet started. The first package I ordered, which I was supposed to pick up a week ago, was postponed for a week at first, and then a second week. The reason I’ve been given is the poor weather down in Georgia this spring has slowed the build-up of hives in the apiaries that are supplying the packages. I’m now scheduled to get that package next weekend.
The second package, from Gold Star Honeybees, is on the way! Or at least it should be. It’s possible it may be delivered today but I think that Monday is more likely. They were to have been shipped on Thursday but the USPS tracking system doesn’t show any activity other than the Electronic Shipping Info Received. That doesn’t necessarily mean the bees aren’t on the way. It wouldn’t be the first time I’ve bought something and had it delivered before the carrier’s tracking system caught up.
We are getting quite anxious to be started, though. It’s been a long wait!
Mail came as I was typing the previous sentence… no bees. Ah, well… gives us reason to look forward to Monday, for a change!
