I came home from the farmer's market around noon to find Adam deep into serious bee work.
After years of having two shapes of bee boxes, he's decided to convert all his Warre hives (the skinny ones with the little roofs) into Langstroth hives (the others).
Below you see the Warre hive on the right. The new Langstroth hive is red. If you look closely you can see a flat red board on top of it with the center cut out in a square. After this photo was taken, Adam lifted the 3 Warre boxes and put them atop the red Langstroth box. For this, the angry bees made him pay with four stings.
Phew! That's a lot of info!
Meanwhile, on the back porch, the radishes are coming along.
