Pictures of my garden hive, it's a mixture of equipment; Kelly, Brushy and Triad.
Very nice! Quite a well made stand there too.
-Did you make sure your hive is perfectly level from side to side, so they can draw the comb straight in your foundationless frames?
Great photos and nice hive Charles,cool color on the hive bodies and goes well with the natural wood :hi: .I really dig that sturdy looking stand too,real nice job. :thumbsup: :coolphotos:
Looks great, hope they make you some nice comb.
How did you get the comb started?
Thanks for the compliments everyone!
Omie, I leveled the hive side to side and sloped forward slightly.
G3farms, The frames are Kelly's foundationless with the beveled top bar, I did not put wax on the bevel. I look forward to seeing the drawn comb.
In the top picture there is a box construction is that how you guys get package bees? Just like recieving a swarm really.
Yes, Mo, that is a box with screen sides and a hole in the top which a can "shown" fits in full of sugar water and a few small holes for the bees to get the feed from. It comes with 3 lb. of bees, "approx. 12,000", and a mated queen. You install them in the hive and let them grow from there.
You sure are nice to your bees, they even got satellite!! :lol:
Is that charolais calves I see in the background on the first pic?
St. Croix sheep.You don't have to sheer them.
Nice!!! Looks like the Garden of Eden to me.
Thank you Omie.Sprinkler system is key.Once you get it to where the kids don't break off the heads your golden.We had a patch of sun today so I un-stacked the suppers to get to the rotted one,and added some more .It looked like it had one more left,but they chewed the corner out and it didn't look structural any more.
