Checking my swarm
Looking at a frame of new honey. I should bring this frame to the State Fair. First prize in the honey frame competition is $75.00.
I checked my swarm today. The queen is laying and they have put up some honey. I had this beekeeper take it home and put it on a weak colony of his. Hopefully he will get some honey off of the combined colony.
I have kept bees for 26 years and run 50 colonies.
