Warm spell and feed

I put 4 pounds of sugar each, 8 pounds total, on the Ambrosium and Josephium. It looks like we have a warm spell coming up.

Cold Spell

We have a cold spell coming up according to Google weather and Channel 11, so I took the feeder pails off. The Josephium has slurped up all its syrup; the Ambrosium has slurped up almost nothing.

Warm winter and an opportunity to feed.

Last month we had a really warm couple of days, so I split a four pound bag of sugar between the Ambrosium and Josephium. They both seemed happy and healthy and bringing in pollen, maple, I guess.

Today it's really warm again, and it looks like we will have a really warm week. The two surviving hives look happy and healthy with plenty of pollen going in, so I added a bag of sugar in syrup pails to each.
