Checking Bees

This afternoon I opened all the hives and checked to see how much food they have after the hot, hot summer we've had and the earthquake and Hurricane Irene - we've had lots of different weather lately.
All the hives have plenty of food but I did move some frames around and took a super off the Swarm Hive and put on Nuc #4.  Some of the hives have empty frames and I'll rearrange those before cold weather.  They're still bringing in some pollen.
