I suppose it's time to make a list of what I will need for the coming year to properly supply my (hopefully) growing hive count. I'd like to stay ahead of the curve and since this will be my first full season I could use some help. To make the list I need a goal for my beekeeping year. As it stands right now I have two colonies that seem to be wintering well. I'd like to get to somewhere near 10 colonies this summer. Since life doesn't tend to follow my plans I'm going to plan for 6 and shoot for 10 I have 8 plywood nucs on hand for expansion. two colonies that are set to get split this spring Wooden ware: 10 telescoping covers 10 all season inner covers 10 queen excluders 10 bottom boards 20 deeps 20 mediums 240 deep frames (extra 40 for the new nuc boxes I have) I'll probably get 300 200 medium frames 240 deep foundation 200 medium foundation ---- 8 2 quart glass jars couple of 25 lbs bags of sugar decide on mite treatment for the year and get supplies ordered What else should I add to my list of things to have for the coming year?
