I run all 8 frame equipment at the moment and with just 50 colonies (double deeps with 4 mediums) that comes out to 2400...
I wish we had that kind of snowfall down here......enjoy the winter while it lasts.
You would be surprised how much equipment can be built during "spare" time throughout the year. 20 boxes here, 15 there.......there is no reason someone couldn't build enough for 1-200 colonies in a...

How I behave matters to my wife, and thus matters to me too...:(

It's funny you ask. I just got done watching my newborn daughter nurse. The minute she was born, she started nursing. I will never forget how she just knew what to do without being taught. I can only...
