The dearth is over, we have bright orange aster pollen going into the Ambrosium and Benedictium, and some yellow stuff going into the Josephium.
But I put four more pounds on the Ambrosium anyway. I opened them up yesterday, and they still had not drawn out the lower deep. I pulled a frame from the center of the upper deep, and I saw no brood, probably because they had no bread. You need bread to breed brood.
