Winter, for what it is worth, is now upon us.  Nothing like those I saw in Colorado and northern California many years ago.  I’m hopeful this year’s honey production will be better than any of the last three seasons.  Managing honeybees for pollination and honey production is a farming venture and very dependent upon the weather.  Louisiana has seen its share of “out-of-the-ordinary weather” these last years.  Between excess moisture, late freezes and the like it’s been difficult for many of our beekeepers to keep their heads above water – literally.  At this writing, it is December 8, 2017 and it snowed last night.  Here in CENLA we had about 3-4 inches but I heard that they received up to 8 inches in eastern LA.

With this letter,
