In a week we will check on them again. We will be watching for them to start filling up the empty frames in the hive body. When they're almost filled, we'll add the next layer or super to the hive, giving them more room to grow and space for food storage.
I'm already looking forward to our next visit. Watching the bees on their comb is so fascinating and there's something very calming about the buzz of the hive and the soft sweet smell of honey and wax that wafts through the air when it's opened. I have a feeling that this is going to be one of my favorite facets of our farm.
