The bees

Beekeeping will definitely take a bigger role in my life as years go by. They are a fascinating bunch. I have one strong hive and two struggling. I am trying to sort out in my head how to help those two but this will also mean another task for me to attend to. All the queens took and there is happy brood in them all. There just isn't enough reserve in the two weaker hives. I am thinking a just making sure they have enough liquid near by and possibly feeding those two a bit. They will never make it at this rate if I don't do something. It might be a low production year. Some years have to be like that I guess and I am not alone in the beekeeping struggle. We'll see what a week does.
