I opened up my thriving hive to find a full box of honey on top and lots and lots of bees. When I worked my way into the brood nest I found plenty of larva, eggs and capped brood and also two small patches of capped drone brood. This seems unusual to me so early in the season in Minnesota but the weather has been unseasonably warm and there is a lot of pollen and nectar coming into the hive. Has anyone else made similar observations?

I look forward to hearing what you all have to say.
