Bee-zy


busy20bees-mMy girls were busy last summer; one hive was split six times. Honey harvest was about six gallons along with a modest amount of comb honey.

This year, the girls are already getting busy. Drones have been noted; some drone comb thrown out of one hive and yesterday we watched a bee gathering honey from the ample fields of clover.

Expansion of the apiary means more splits, some queens, and a place to put them. Yesterday we placed some T-posts with rails to place nucs and hives on. I had thought we needed the T-post driver but the ground was so sodden, the posts went in quite easily—and pulled up equally easily when they weren’t quite in the right spot.

Today will be leveling.
