Honey and Dust

Hi all,

One of our hives did not make it through the chaotic weather this year. We did not see any sign of disease or excessive varroa, so we’re going to chalk it down to failure to thrive. We did get some honey from this hive, so we’re excited about that! This also allows us to retire our 10 Frame equipment, to some extent, and focus on the smaller size hives. Picking up those 10 frame deeps was excruciating at best, and impossible when full of brood, honey, and bees. Either way, enjoy our winter honey pictures:
