The Britannia School Garden Honey Bees are Thriving

Spent an hour with the bees this week and amazing with how well they are doing. The hives are very full with what looks like several thousand bees. We have been adding broad chambers and honey supers. I think the bee keepers were also wanting to move a queen to another hive to avoid swarming  as the hives were filling fast.  Tasted some dark rich honey from these hives for the first time. There is much to learn about keeping bees and I look forward to working with our beekeeper teacher and her students as part of her Communications class next term.
