I had to look

I took advantage of this fine day to check on the ladies.  I downsized the apiary last year because I didn’t have enough time to manage the buildup I had last year – 24 colonies spread over 3 locations.

Went into this winter with 3 colonies.  Came out with 3!  So far I haven’t lost any, a first for me.

They’re bringing in orange and light yellow pollen.

Popped the top and the inner covers just to grab a quick look down in.  Healthy looking colonies, some honey left yet!  The smell of healthy hives wafted from all 3.

Spread 4 lbs of sugar on the inner covers between the 3 colonies for justin (just in case they need additional groceries) 🙂
