Beehive update @ one full week: Cool day they flew excitedly in the afternoon no gain today and no loss. The weather was just too damp and cool. Total for the week +3.75 lb. I might have read the scale wrong so the numbers may not add up right but I think that last number at least 3.5 lb for the week is correct. Probably my last daily beehive post. Always short on time or energy but maybe I can write weekly updates

More about the beehive: I may condense them into one deep box and one super (honey harvesting box) rather than two and see if this increases their efficiency. I will also swap some new frames in. So the weight of the hive may change but the total weight isnt whats important. The change in weight is whats very important.
