Plan: in the spring when I reverse can I take the mostly-empty lower box, remove alternate frames of old comb, replace them with starter strips or SC foundation, and put the box on top? I'd like to get started regressing... would just replacing all 10 frames with 11 frames of SC foundation at the first reverse be too stressful? I'm planning on feeding to get them drawing it out.
I'm thinking I'm just not patient enough to feed frames gradually into the broodnest all summer. Thoughts?
