The slowest bees in town

There haven’t been any updates for a while, because well, my bees are taking a rather long time to get to business.  To be fair I started off with maybe 150 bees and the hive has grown from that to I’m guessing around 1000 or so.  The first super is starting to look the real deal now, with most of the frames filling with brood and I think they’re finally collecting nectar to turn into honey – that said they did need another little honey feed to help with drawing out the comb (thanks to Lyndon Melbourne’s very own Urban Honey Company keeper).

I’m going to check tomorrow evening on the state of the hive and with luck they’ll be in a strong position to over winter.
