Bee Report

Only 9 weeks after starting a new hive with a swarm - and 7 weeks after the bee nucs we purchased, I am happy to report that the bees are doing great. Better than great, actually! I didn't expect them to be so busy and productive. As I had hard, one box of honey had to weigh over 80 lbs! I compared it to picking up Liddy and it almost equal! Here's some pictures I snapped while inspecting the hives.

I created a bucket of water with sticks for a
"bee drinking station"since it's been so hot!
