Checking the polination hives

Today we drove out to check some of the pollination hives. It was late in the afternoon, close to evening, which didn't make for happy bees (we got stung a few times each, but nothing a little walking off couldn't take care of). After checking to see how they were doing (they all had at least some honey in the supers, with a few being almost full), we added extra supers and queen excluders to some of the strongest hives and went on our way. Soon, we should be able to harvest the honey and bottle it up for the farmers markets!
