Dang! I had hoped to get a picture so you could see the newer, heavier, all-cedar, top-bar hive, but I sold it yesterday. I can’t keep these things on hand.
Now I’m off to build another one (though I think I need to order a gizmo part from Sears for my table saw…it’s not cutting perfectly).
In the meantime, Deb made a visit to her top-bar hive yesterday. Those bees are doing great…they’re quickly filling their hive with comb and brood, and a lovely cloud of bees rises from the hive in the sunlight every afternoon. It feels good to have bees flying through the air and through the yard.
