I did it by myself!

We added the second box

It is hard to see, but the queen has the green dot on her.

I didn't know I had all those bees on me!
Today I opened the hive all by myself! Also, I never got stung. The queen has been laying eggs, and almost all of the first box has been covered. So, I added a second box. The bees gulped down all of the sugar water, so there wasn't even a drop left. For the next two weeks I will be checking the hive by myself, but on the third week Corky will return just to make sure everything is going smoothly. Well, the hive is thriving, and I should get honey by June/July.
