I checked out my girls last weekend and I am happy to report the 2 remaining colonies are both doing well. One has 3 frames of active bees and a good amount of extra food, the other has 7 frames of bees and also plenty of food stored. This leaves me with a hesitant optimism they will make it through the rest of this winter OK,
It is a really wet January and we are still holding up. I am happy for these girls.
In the next break of Rain, I will check when it is time to split one of them.
