Received my 2 new garden hives from Brushy Mtn yesterday.
One of the landing boards was broken and one of mediums had a bad crack in it. They are replacing both. Some other minor defects that I am probably being overly nit picky about, but when they are the price of gold I expect perfection. (I know they are only bee hives and not designer furniture, but my girls deserve the best.) Anyway, what with the extra mediums I bought and other assundry things, shipping was as much as a third hive. Actually I had cancelled the order once because of the shipping, but the "heart wants what the heart wants" so I re-ordered.
Have the bees wax portion of the wax and rosin finish. Acutally I woke up in the middle of the night two nights ago because I forgot the rosin part of the formula.
Need to get that and find a big enough container to boil them in. Hopefully we will have a long Indian summer to get the new hives cooked. Spring (and putting my new hives into use) is a long way off.
