Thanks.  That camera fade I didn't really want.  It's part of Image Shack's slide show set up.  I bet for some other things it would be really neat.

Bassman1977.  I liked that little slide show, I thought the fading in and out was cool too.  Very nice layout of the apiary, well done, have a great and wonderfully beautiful day, Cindi

This is my first hive. The area around it is dirt for now until I can get the clover planted.

Topbarslo. nICE pics!
You have lots of room to work too!
 It sort of looks like a picnic grounds with the hives with the tops on them Smiley
 What are the yellow wrappers on the bottom of the trees, to protect from your weedeater?
 Also, what are the smaller boxes near some of the hives, Package bees?
 Anyways, real nice! It looks like youre doing alot of work there...Must be a new place, huh?

 And, I spy a little red house next to the wall on the left of the pic. Is that a big birdhouse?

Update: 2008 
Over 200 hives 90% are on clipped 4 way pallets.


Here are some that were in the orange grove.




Here is the biggest yard with 88 hives in it.


Weather permiting I will get pics of the other yards tomarrow. I'm getting ready to pull all the hives out of the melon fields and distribute them to all the outyards.

Yeah, I know it won't stay crisp white for long.  grin
I'd like to have another hive, but would probably put it at our mini farm.
I have to be careful not to have too much hive activity here at home.
Don't want neighbors complaining.
The lattice is just there to help hide the hive from the side street. I'd like to put some type of vine on it, maybe an autumn clematis?
Little red house is a decorative bird house. It's not functional, and I'm afraid some bees may decide to make a home there. I may have to move it somewhere else.  Undecided  I got to go, the cat's trying to help me type.  rolleyes

Great set-up! You must be knee deep in orange blossom honey.

Yea pretty big garden. I took land from wheat and corn field. I will start with some bee friendly agriculture next year on the whole field.

Yellow wrappers around trees are because of rabbits and my three cats that like to play with anything wood that stands out Wink

Those boxes were packages of bees I installed into top bar hives. Left it there for one day so that all bees find their new home. Next day all were empty and I removed those.

Yep new place. Like I said I took some land from corn and wheat for my bees Smiley and now I am planting all kinds of flowers, herbs and vegetables there.

My home yard from a couple of years ago.  It's almost empty this week as I moved a bunch of hives to some vetch this weekend.

JP, not very much orange blossom this year. Sad   Matt, I can not imagine not having the flatbed now, it makes life a lot easier. How much honey did you guys pull in so far this year?

I got 6 gallons so far but expect that much or more again by the end of June.  I could taste the orange in some of it.  I got 4 gallons of very nice table quality wildflower honey and 2 gallons of some darker honey but it is still pretty good. 

I had 3 hives, going into the flow.  My best one swarmed about 6 weeks ago.  Captured the swarm but that slowed down the honey production.   That swarm though has just about filled a super now.

I now 4 hives and am considering some expansion but I need to start finding some place to keep them.
