We couldn’t resist getting outside to work today and, clearly, neither could our bees!
To update happenings in the hives: We are feeding the bees sugar water with a 2 (that is, two 5 lb. bags of sugar) to 1 (gallon of water) solution. We put three one-quart mason jars full of the sweet stuff into the hive at a time. These are housed in extra boxes above the active hive and honey stores. We have been monitoring need for refills and, actually, took a peek today. They are feeding. All seems well. We will refill a couple of the bottles in the next day or two.
