Beehive growth

So happy to report that our bees are multiplying to the point that we had to get more supers to start another hive. Michael is building another bee box and this will make three!

Hive 1 is not flourishing as well as we would like. While we see larvae, we have yet located the actual queen. Hive 2 is full of honey, so extraction is soon.

Alex (age 10) got a full class on beekeeping while visiting Poppa and Mimi over the weekend. Alex is so much like her Poppa. She loves gardening, cooking, making things and now loves the bees. I think it is so wonderful that he has passed along those amazingly wonderful traits about him to his precious granddaughter.
