Off to the Orchard!

I am still up to my old devices when April rolls around--the apple blossoms are swelling, and the bees need to be there when the flowers pop. I always go into Wilson's Orchard near Iowa City with the half-ton truck because there is a narrow bridge that doesn't seem like a good fit for the flatbed dually. Handling hives on the back of a flatbed is several times easier than scooting them around in a conventional pickup bed. Anyway, brave red truck was up to the task and delivered 29 singles today, and some more hives will be going in for the apple blossom bonanza very soon:
Last year's orchard venture looked quite similar, though the truck was a little less loaded down. Now we will hope for decent weather when the flowers actually open!
