Demeter has a laying queen!

According to bee math on June 20th, if the superseder cells I spotted then did just hatch I would have a queen right about now.  I just looked and YES I do have eggs and some larvae!  The hive seemed like it's content self again.

Solar wax melter update

The hot Georgia sun makes for quick work of cleaning my wax.
 Bag of cappings.

In the solar wax melter before melting.

Slum gum (dirt) that was left after melting.

Clean wax!
