I've been feeding the hives lately. The Valentinium has taken very little feed, while the Benedictium has taken quite a bit.

The last two weeks have been really cold; we've had an arctic vortex. But today the temperature got up to the sixties and the bees were out.

I noticed that the Valentinians had quite a bit of sugar stuck to them, so I took the hive apart to take a look. I saw a fair amount of crystalized sugar in there. But more importantly, I saw that there were about 6 and a half frames of honey in the upper body, and the frames in the lower body were all empty. I saw no brood comb.
