Bees, digging and rain.

Added another box to the hive and pulled two medium frames to put in it. I replaced them with empty mediums in the second box. I really need to get those deep frames out, and the extra cut off and rubber banded into other frames. If I get a queen excluder between the second and third boxes and move the queen up to the third box, then the bees can all hatch from the deeps and I can move them out easier. Although it was all bright and sunny, as soon as I got the lid back on, it started to rain. The weather has been pretty wet which has made taking care of the bees interesting, and trying to move the big dirt pile to cover the drain pipe. An hour of digging every day. *Le sigh*
