Today I harvested six frames of honey. I scraped the comb off of the foundation and strained it into a plastic tub. For now I put the frames in the freezer in the garage. I am now realizing that I will need to store my medium supers and other equipment with drawn frames and/or capped honey. I live in the high desert so the garage or storage shed get very hot and may cause an equipment meltdown. How do you other beekeepers store your equipment after extracting or capped and ready for winter feeding?

I live in a cold winter climate. Would that be too much for them to care for?

First, why would you store capped honey...winter feeding?? You should leave enough honey on the hive come fall so you don't have to feed in the winter. There are several ways to store drawn supers to keep them free of wax moths, the way I use is to store them out where they can get lots of fresh air and light...but covered.:)
