As my bottom deep boxes are getting full I am wondering if there is a common hive configuration. I have seen pictures of all different setups and I don't know what time of year the pictures are taken. Is it 2 deep boxes for brood and then up to 3 medium supers on top to harvest the honey from. Then leave the 2 deep boxes together during winter. So if my first deep brood box is filling up I need to add another deep box then when the second deep is getting full add a medium honey super. I was just looking at some pictures and they had 1 deep box and 3 medium supers sitting on top. Just made me think of why they had it that way.
