We’re halfway through the week, and I can’t wait until this weekend’s inspection! I am very curious to see what our hive will have accomplished.
Here’s the Mid-Week Update!
It’s been a very wet week, since the evening of our last inspection there has been possibility of rain. With lots of rain Monday-Thursday. Hoping everything is going well at the hive, since I haven’t seem them since Saturday. Extremely excited to see what kind of nectar flow these storms will help produce! Lastly, I’m hoping having the hive inside the hive so much has encouraged “all hands on deck” with building out the remaining 4 empty frames. Lots of different angles to consider!
Also, we have our two initial hive adoptions in progress! They should be able to have bees in them within a month or two. Very grateful to have my Mother and Grandmother both interested in supporting a colony of bees, and having neighboring hives has many perks when trying to build healthy colonies. This allows healthy bees to share resources, frames, and hive-parts when needed or not needed. Plus it will be fun, give more beekeeping experience to our team, and be extremely interesting getting to know different temperaments and varieties of Honey Bee.
This will put us at 3 of 6 hives into our before-winter goal for the first Royal Jelly apiary! Lots to be excited about, it’s been a magical experience so far!
This weekend we’ll inspect Saturday morning, then going to do the groundwork for the next two hives. Digging the holes for hive stand, laying first layer of concrete block, and going to plant sunflowers around our apiary!
Contact us through the website if you’re interested in adopting a hive our apiary, we have plenty of room to grow before the Winter, and into next Spring!
