Thanks AllenF. I have some more recent pictures somewhere that show my electric fence charger, log splitter , and all seven hives we had before three of them starved. Those more recent pictures give you a much better feel for the backyard with the garden in the background. . Wink Lord knows where the picture are so I posted these two while my wife {Reinbeau} was around to help me.
 I wish others would post pictures of their yards because this is a VERY interesting thread. I love seeing the great ideas and creativeness of others.

It started out as Asparagus Green or something like that and when we built our chicken coop we mixed a couple gallon cans with a 5 gallon bucket and the color you see is what we ended up with.
 You can see the chicken coop and where some of our hives are here in MA. here: http://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=45491&p=4
 We extended the stand where the four hives you see in the pictures to hold seven. Next year we'll have six hives on that stand and two to four on a stand about 10' in front of that one. We'll have between 15-18 hives on the ground depending on how many we lose over the winter.

Very colorful hives there.   Can't wait to bee hives with your logo cut into the fronts.   Wink

KB Farms I am so impressed with your bee yard. You should have turned this photo into the Bee culture calendar contest. I am sure it would have ended up in the calendar.

Thanks for sharing.

Which direction is the best way to face a hive?  I currently have a 3 hive beeyard and they both face South.  I'd like to set up a 3rd hive closer to my house for observation.....and I want to make sure I have it orientated correctly.  Thanks!

Kind of a funny place to ask that Q meade kampe, but it sounds like you're already facing them fine.  However,.........
?You have a 3 hive beeyard and they 'both' face South??? confused me a bit Undecided

Most beeks say facing the entrance South to Southeast is best, but I'm not convinced of any particular direction, except; Out of prevailing winds in YOUR area,,,,,,, but I came here for hints on how to post pics of my bee yard, so now you owe us Wink a picture, that is grin.
