Couple Hives
« on: August 24, 2008, 05:26:00 PM »
A pic of a couple of my hives. The one @ the left has already had six or seven supers remove --- the one on the right didn't fair as well (Queen issue). One on the left started as a deep and two shallow. I used Walt's Wrights principles of Nectar Management on both hives. The picture is after the first harvest so I have several more I could and should take (worried about shb). This is a very good harvest for my area which has about a 40-50lb average. These two produced this good also last year. A friend suppose to help me get it of next week if weather permits (I'm still on crutches --- leg surgery :()

The kid is a kid from church that kept asking his parents about bees so I carried him to the yard July 8 the day before surgery. He was a trooper but he's a little quite.

Had to warn him about touching the smoker.

Can't get any fresher -- I guess :-D!

Sc-bees.  Very nice picture of that young man, isn't it cool that he has taken an interest, up and coming beekeeper, thank you for taking us into this part of your world.  Have the best of a wonderful and a great day. Cindi
