Bees are building on the last bar I had in their hive. I went ahead and added 4 more bars. I am now up to 19 bars on this new hive.

I have nothing to compare it to, but I think they are going like gang busters.

This has to be the single most stupid thing I've seen this year. Instead of wasting the yarn to knit something for over 90 trees that has no benefit to the trees how about knitting a sweater for over 90 homeless people. How about knit over 90 sweaters of kids who's parents can't afford to buy them a decent winter jacket. Is everyone in Iowa City so rich that there is not these kinds of needs? I think not!

3rd base coach for the Red Hawks got ejected because he would not stop running his mouth after his teammate got nailed with a 97 mph fast ball.

This year I want to try to maintain a beehive. I've decided to go with a top bar beehive. I am using the plans found at http://www.biobees.com/build-a-beehive-free-plans.php.

If you use these plans, I suggest you consider making the ends 17" X 12" X 1". I used the 18" x 12" x 1" and mistakenly thought that roof frame was suppose to be attached on the inside of the end pieces, but looking at end pictures in the plan it is on the outside. So if it is on the outside it would make sense that the ends should be the same length as the top bar. Ultimately, my hive is about 1/2" narrower then the plans. I don't think the bees will mind too much. 

My next steps are to first create a roof and figure out how I going to attach legs. Then I'll cut all the top bars and attach the comb building guides, and apply a bit of beeswax to the guide. Finally, I will use some linseed oil and beeswax to coat the outside of the hive for a bit of weather protection and make the cedar wood grain "pop".

Anyway, I'll post more images when I progress further along.

Thank you for your input but this system is inside in my basement. I have a cool white T5 fluorescent tube about 12 inches above the plants set on a timer to come on from 5am to 9pm.
