Feeding time

I pulled the feed buckets out of both hives. The Valentinium had drunk most of their, and the Benedictium had drunk all. The Valentinium bucket had some mold in it, so we replaced their feed, and put in another gallon into the Benedictium. We used our standard recipe, 4 pounds of pure cane sugar per gallon. I cooled them off, and then Lucy and I put the buckets back in. I put on my disposable blue nitrile gloves, but no other gear. I think next time, I'll wear a veil. Some of the bees did not appreciate being shooed away from the floor of the supers to make room for the bucket.

I'm doing this a day early since we expect thunderstorms tomorrow.
