Nice hive Conrad. Those deeps must've been a bear to lift off once they were full! Beautiful white capped honey frame. Did that hive fill all those deep supers with honey? I've heard how much of a honey crop is possible in your part of Canada. In N. GA a really good year might be 120 lbs/hive.
Take care.

Thank you all!

Bruce, very neat!!

>>Those deeps must've been a bear to lift off once they were full

No, when you take out frame by frame, they are very light ;)

>>Did that hive fill all those deep supers with honey

No, I put a empty box on top, two deep supers where filled, not bad considering package installed into bare plastic foundation.

>>Boxes don't make honey.
>>Bees make honey

Allot of bees but hardly any honey :confused: ....did you just harvest?

Just joshing with you, Konrad.
You're a good sport.

Your hive looks great!
When this picture was taken I had just went into hybrd carrots isolated way out in the desert.
I made very little honey out there, but the grower had no complaints!
What little honey that I did make was carrot honey. :eek:

Harry ,we pollinated some carrots for a couple years.The bees did quite well.We bottled the carrot honey and labeled it as such.Some people liked it so much,we still get asked for it.But no one likes peppermint..... :(
If I could just set my hives next to Konrad and get some of that good Canadian honey........
