Thought I'd stop in and introduce myself.
This is my first year with a hive, and hopefully I'll have a few more in the next couple years. I installed a package in an eight frame deep on April 8th and things appear to be progressing well. The inner six frames have been drawn out. Lot's of larvae and new bees hatching, and a good 25% of the upper part of the frames are white capped honey. I added a second deep a couple weeks ago but so far the girls aren't too interested. I'm thinking of pulling it off and using a honey super instead, but I have a lot of reading to do here before I make that decision. I know we're not supposed to expect much the first year.
I have some questions, but I'm sure they've all been answered more than once, so I'm going to read first and ask later
