Goldenrod still going strong
In my inspection the other day, I was surprised to see that hive #4, which at last inspection was basically out of food and had no larva and few capped cells, had many more bees than I recalled and were filling cells both with nectar and royal jelly! I did not see the queen, though I didn't look in the bottom of the two boxes. I do suspect that they have made a new queen and she is hopefully about to begin laying. I "think" I saw a few eggs, though not for sure since the lighting was poor at the time. The other hives certainly have some honey ready in them, though there seemed to be a lot of frames full of honey that wasn't ready to be capped. I'll give them more time.
