beekeeper 2.0

Back at it this week and all went great! My mother came up to the house with me and kept me company during my inspection (maybe it was the being alone that kicked up the nerves slightly?) and all went fine. I saw some eggs in some cells, as well as capped off brood, so the queen has been doing her job. There does appear to be a supercedure cell as well (a peanut shaped cell where it looks like the bees are trying to breed a new queen), so maybe they aren’t happy with their current queen? I figure, bees have been doing this for thousands of years, so I’m just going to let nature take its course!
