me and the wife (tracy) did our first inspection of our first colony today. had them a week now and things look good. plenty of stores, all sorts of brood and tracy found the queen. they cover 9 of the 11 frames and have drawn one side of the tenth. put a super on and will check in a few days putting QE on then and making sure the queen is under it. its feeels good to be checking on our own bees at last. :hurray:
