One of our bee hives is doing very well. The bees have almost filled the frames in one super. The other hive is coming along a lot more slowly, but seems healthy.
This is a capped frame. Each of the hexagonal cells is filled with honey then capped with wax.
Each super holds ten of these frames. We prefer to wait until we have at least two full supers before we extract. But removing the honey stimulates them to produce more so, we may go ahead and extract soon.
And when we do, we’ll be glad to have lots of what is often called nature’s perfect food.
