Let's See the Queen Bee

There's the queen!

After waiting for the longest weekend over to be ever, we finally checked on the queen. We used our smoker to calm the bees and then we pulled out the queen's cage (top picture). It was empty.

Since the cage was empty, we decide to look for the queen on one of the frames. we found her on the second frame. There she is with the big white dot on her back.

The bees have been quite busy the last four days. They have built up some comb on four of the frames. Things are looking good for them.

Our garden is off to a good start. Our plants are still looking healthy, and our bees are doing what they should. We sure can't wait until they can pollinate our vegetables.

Happy Farming!
