I split the 3 from last year, and started 10 packages.  If I can find a couple yards, I'll try to expand a bit more.

I have four, but one is a very small nuc, and two are swarms that are just beginning. the other hive is a full populated hive but I have removed too many frames for nucs and swarms that they have slowed down making honey. but we have a long season so I am hoping I can still take a bit of honey from them before the year is up.

Currently have three, but hope to have four or more by winter. Depends on the growth of the bees, and how many splits can be done.

I clicked the wrong one guys, I'm sorry.  I clicked 100-999 when I meant to click 11-99.  Once again sorry.

Yeah. I thought someone was going to make a chart showing those that don't post and those that need the attention :lol:
