A new platform

Post: Bernie: April 28, 2011
Note: To follow our Bee Keeping adventure from beginning to end, choose Setting up the hive from the index at right.

The weather changed back to very cool and damp.

Eric made a platform for the hive that would keep it off the ground and provide better sunlight and air circulation.

The larger size gives him a place to put the frames and other things while he is working at the hive.

We lifted the hive and slid it up onto the platform.

Eric gave them more sugar water.

Then back together again.

But after some cold nights and damp, cold  days I became concerned that something happened  to the Bees.
