Yesterday afternoon I took a peek into my beehive, to check on progress. I found evidence of eggs, larva and many healthy worker bees. There is nectar and some honey stores. I did put on a honey super, but so far they have not made any honey to share with me, which is pretty typical of a first year hive, especially in northern climates. I was pleasantly surprised with a picking of wild raspberries that were abundant on the sod-rooftop where we keep the hive.
I continue to enjoy learning about bees and local flowers and wildlife with the experience of beekeeping. I hope you enjoy following along!
