While at the farm I checked on the bees. I couldn't find the pine needles for my smoker, so I went without smoke. Ya know, everytime I go without smoke I really regret it, not that I get stung, but it is very disturbing to the bees when I don't use smoke.
The West hive has bees in the honey super, but they are not drawing out any comb yet. That really surprises me since the honey super has been on since June 7th. I am also please with the East hive in that it is looking strong and filling out the frames with lots of capped brood and honey on the deep frames. I will check them again on the 4th of July weekend and see if the East hive is ready for the honey super.
Note to self: Remember pine needles!
