The Big House

So today I checked the bees.  I know - it has been awhile - lots and lots of bees.  Checked the top two supers and they're full of honey.  I can't take the honey right now so I added a deep to the top of the hive.  This is a temporary fix but will give them some room and give me some time.  I have braced each side in case we have windy days and/or storms.  So now there's a deep, four supers and another deep on top.

So for those folks that have waited patiently for honey, it's coming!
