Lots of you really seem to enjoy hearing about the honeybees so I thought I would share something which has impressed the heck out of us. I've mentioned that the bees have struggled through our last two very long and difficult winters. They got off to a shaky start this spring as the season was so late arriving, but they have done an incredible job getting themselves back on track. Even in this wicked hot and humid weather we've been having the past couple of weeks, the bees have been industriously making honey.
We keep a close eye on their progress and add honey supers as needed. Yesterday we added a SIXTH honey super to this one hive, giving it the distinction of having the most supers EVER since hubby started beekeeping, about 20 years ago. His previous record was 5.
