I seem to be having a good year. The weather is finally cooperating, with the right amount of rain, instead of drought or torrential, blossom destroying downpours like I've had other years. The bees have been working hard and I've got a good bit of capped honey.
I guess I didn't plan well enough, cause I will be putting my last few empty boxes on tomorrow, and still need 3 more to give to those that need one. I 'might' be able to get some assembled boxes locally, but if I can't, they will be overcrowded by the time I get some shipped and assembled.
Can I just line a sturdy box with a plastic bag and pull frames into it? Then I could seal it up and keep it away from mice til I get someone to extract them for me. This is my fourth year with bees, but the first that I will have any significant amount of honey, so I guess I was taken by surprise.
