Cold and Rain, so Scout Takes up Carpentry

The weather was nasty and cold.   The bees were not flying, so the weekend hive inspection was canceled.  Will and his mom wanted to see how the bees were doing nonetheless, but there was not much to see.  Rather than bother the bees in bad weather, we went in the garage and had some training in carpentry.   Will assembled two deep brood chamber boxes.   He glued the joints, nailed the dadoes with galvanized nails and added staples from the air nailer.   All-in-all a good use of time on a cold, wet Saturday afternoon.   We need to stain the boxes and then put them into service.   We now have plenty of hives, so we need to continue to gather equipment when time allows.
