Yesterday, Jason and I cleaned out the basement room where we brooded the chicks and turned it into my new beekeepin' studio/garden storage spot. I am very pleased to finally have a space dedicated totally to storing garden tools and building bee boxes. Hooray for dedicated space!
My new bee space! Where once we brooded chicks, bee boxes will now be built.
Bee building studio in the daylight.
How I build my frames: a strip of foundation gives the bees something to build off of.
I use medium frames
I am attempting to be better about labeling my frames with the year they go in the hive so I can rotate out old brood comb once it gets too funky.
