Movin' On Up
Tonight I went to the farm with Aaron, Elijah, and Nicolas with several tasks on the agenda including checking on the bees. It had been 3 days since checking on the bees and each hive had been using the sugar water. The west hive had used a little over a quart and the east hive just under a quart. I filled them both up, and then I decided to peek inside the hives since adding the second deep frame super. The east hive only had a small number of bees checking it out; they weren't working but just walking around on the frames. The west hive has hard at work on the second super. I was tickled to see them starting to build more comb! My hope is that by the end of May I will be able to add the third medium super so they can start making honey for me!
