I spent the day trying to finish making the next long hive. Got three walls and the floor finished. Just have to hurry up and decide whether to have a top or bottom entrance so I can finish the last wall.
Had to walk away a few times and wound up spending way too much time watching my bees. Tomorrow should see it all finished, except for the base that it will sit on, but I have at least a month yet before I can make a split for it so...no hurry yet.
