Kare does her share of taking care of the girls. I cut and assemble the hives and bottom boards, she stains them if I have other work that needs my touch. I tell her I need syrup and she does the mixing and putting it in the jars. She also does the medication mix that they need. Haven't had honey to bottle yet, but I am sure she is going to have her hands full of that when the time comes since she cut the comb and packaged it last year.
She is the camera person when I am inspecting them And catching swarms too. She gives me Ideas on how to do things easier, finds the numbers and calls many suppliers and club members when needed.
I told her last night she better start reading up on how to install her package of bees.
She said I had better learn how to mix syrup for the rest of our bees.
Tomorrow I will be medicating our seven new colonies. She will be taking pictures, taking notes on what needs replaceing and which colonies look strong enough to do splits on/with.
