Here it is...

... my bee home. I know, I need to clean it up. This is looking NNW my property is about 900 feet long and 200 feet wide. The hives are about half way back. That house in the back ground is where I live.

Like I said, we have a lot of wind break around here. The closest hive are the barn wall bees, then the church bees, the Rocking Chair Ranch bees, and finally the pump house bees.

The stock tank is holding all the extra comb from when I kidnapped the girls so they can rob out everything that might be left. The aquarium has some empty comb lying in it. I dump water onto the comb filling the cells. Hey the bees don't drown. Hopefully I'll get my solar wax melter built soon and get this stuff melted down.

OH Yeah, I know I mentioned the church bees were in two deeps but as I was getting them back up onto the hive stand, after the wind blew them down the other day, I went trough the top box frame at a time. They were still covering all the old comb which is in side ways. They have placed the supplies in it. They have not built any new comb from the starter strips but have braced the old stuff to the frames a little. I am beginning to wonder if I didn't get a queen at all. Or if the wind wiped her out when the thing fell over. Might have to rob some brood from another hive. I sure did want that church bee blood line. They seemed to be real workers.

Your picture is interesting. Nice looking set up. What are the small boxes on the bottom?

I guess I should have, and will tomorrow, took a picture of the back side. The deeps, which are bigger than store bought, hold 13 frames. They sit upon the hive bottom. It consist of two places where I can slide in a quarter inch hardware cloth, to keep out the mice, and another place below that where I can slide in a board to close it off if I ever want to transport it, or a catch tray if I ever think I have V. mites. Other wise it is open for ventilation and for bees to come and go at will.

Will doesn't like it much.  :roll:

When I click on your hyperlinks I don't see anything.  A  new IE browser window opens and it's blank and stays blank.  I guess you could say
I can't see the big picture.

What can I do.

It works for me. Any one else have a problem? I am computer illiterate. I wouldn't know what to do to fix it. I do use firefox browser if that means anything.

Here is the big picture.
