What with the weather being a bit better I thought it was about time I started to plan for this year.

I managed to asemble 5 cedar brood boxes this afternoon.
My plan now is to make up the frames but leave out one bottom bar and the foundation.

Must admit it did feel good to be doing some bee stuff again after the long winter.

Poly hives push together, takes some two minutes to assemble and ten to paint.
