Furure Beeyard and the hives.
« on: March 16, 2008, 10:36:12 PM »
The future Beeyard site.






Two hives I built.  They are both white now.




The "GREEN MONSTER".




Frame storage cabinets I built.








I will be posting more pics later as things progress.

Those frame storage cabinets are neat, Mike, what gave you that idea?

I just figured that once I get the foundation installed, I will need a place to keep them safe from the critters and from my clumsy self.  The tall ones hold 42 mediums and the small one holds 21 Deeps.  I am going to build one more small one and I should be good for now.

Mike, some very nice work you have been up to, and the beeyard looks wonderful.  You have no idea how much I wish that I had carpentry skills, even in the slightest.  Even for me to bang in a nail without missing it a bunch of times is a groan for me.  I just can't do that kind of stuff, wha, wha, I am such a whiner.  Have a beautiful, great and wonderful day, Cindi
