You guys are great...I called Mann Lake as I am putting together my order with them. They have free shipping over 100 bucks... Im double over that.
..cause Im so new.
They mentioned the Ross Round conversion but it costs 80 bucks. Scratch that.
They also mentioned the top feeder but I think Ill go with my extra Deep and a chicken waterer for the spring syrup water. Cheaper.
I will possibly use these odd supers down the line like Wadehump suggested for fall feeding.
I can buy the 10 frame honey super I need with frames for 40 bucks so I guess thats what Ill do.
I dont like being so naive on this new hobby. It has found me more than I have looked for it. I am just accepting it as fate that I should try to be a beekeeper. I am muddling through the best I can. Thank you all for the considerate responses.
I hate to say this because we are in the heat of the ordering season but the woman at Mann Lake patience's were short. As a newbee, I really needed some support with my (apparently stupid) questions.
Huge thanks to all here for the kindness!
