We did indeed receive updates on the Apimaye hives I posted about previously. He sent a couple of pictures documenting their growth over the summer.
Here they were in spring:
And here they are more recently–happily they are much taller and spent their summer productively!
Next spring it will be interesting to see how they overwinter and how their cluster looks at that time.
I am now firmly into mite treatment season and continuing with the harvest. I was planning to pull a couple of yards today, but light showers have made it overcast and a bit damp. No worries, there is plenty of indoor work to stay busy!
