Supers Added and Next Meeting
We made up 22 frames over the weekend and added a super to each of our colonies on the veg patch. Prospects for a reasonable honey harvest look good. We have two almost full supers and three more in place. But it all depends on continuing good weather.
Picture shows on the right our swarm bees and on the left our Buckfasts. Both are mongrels. The swarm bees have the British black bee look whereas the Buckfasts show an Italian influence with a pronounced gingery appearance.
Next Wednesday’s meet at 7′;00 pm will be at Brooklyn House to look at our third colony.
