new empty beehives

I plan to get some honeybees soon. Here are the new empty hives. I painted the sections in different colors. A friend has offered me her older hive of active bees, but the trick will be to transport it over here to our yard. We'll see. If that project proves impossible, then I will just have to wait until Spring to get the honeybees and queens.
At least I have their new homes ready!


  1. How beautiful! Love those colors. I went to a beekeeping demo last month and hope to start a hive in 2010 also. A good companion project for those of us who raise worms (is that the right verb ... "raise"?).

  2. Thanks Pam!
    Yes, I think worm bins and bee hives are a nice pair of things to have!
