This is just a short post, as we have hit the crazy time of the year, with horrid amounts of work to do. Thankfully the bees have required little – just a bit of a feed now and then. I use sugar dissolved in just enough hot water, to feed them, when it is cool again of course. I have also fed hem some frames of honey from last year, yum yum.
E is gaining in confidence, and has helped me several times, and I have made a new hive tool from a piece of mild steel – very helpful. Each hive now has two full depth boxes, and they are so very busy. Nice to see.
