Farming in the Twilight of Predatory Capitalism

It is February 12th, 2022 in Willamette Valley, Oregon. A few years ago, I would have been worried about my hives of honey bees: do they have enough food storage left, is the temporary winter structure shielding the hive sufficiently from the freezing wind, did I successfully treat them for varroa mites last fall, are they still alive in their hives?

Today, I see this: the bees are out and about!
