If you have pics, please let me know.  Send them to, preferably in jpg form. At this time, we have the space to post any and all snaps to this site. As we fill up our 20MB of space, I may have to delete older pics.  I will split the pics up onto different pages, as the need arises. Thanks to all.

 Who said that you can't stretch a shallow frame into a deep frame?  The bees have done an excellent job!

 Two hives located out back of Waterford, Ohio. They have about 35 - 40 acres of buckwheat in which to work. That will keep them busy for a few weeks.
