I broke the frame as I was pulling it out to inspect. I was so disappointed in myself, luckily the bees were really happy about it.
These are my bee mentors. They are awesome. Jane Wild and her husband. What is really helpful is they watch me do it, they don't do it for me. I learn more that way.
Thank you for helping me out. I have decided not to take any honey this season. I want to leave it for the bees, to help them through the winter. All three hives seem to be thriving now. I don't want to disturb them.
