One small step for bees..One giant step for beekind!

Caleb came over and we went through the rest of the hive that we couldn’t get to the first time.  The outfits we wear remind me of the astronaut clothing for the lunar landing, hence the title. Lucky for us, the first 7 bars that hold the babies were in pretty good shape. Those bars had the brood and a little honey. I saw the queen! She was busy scurring around with her court and laying eggs. There was a good amount of brood and some pollen and honey. Caleb thought they looked better than he expected with conditions and lack of flowers this year. We will not be getting any honey because they will need all they make and we will have to feed them this winter to help get them through it. Here are some photos.
