Ready to 'super' up!!!

Well we have got to that time of year again where the bees are getting out and there is plenty of them to feast on. Of course this means that we need somewhere for them to put there honey stores so I got busy making my frames. Last year when I first got my bees it took me an hour to build the first frame. I have gotten more efficient and confident now though and I am building on average ten an hour!!

Just as well I got quicker as I needed to build 48 super frames and brood frames. If you want a quick guide on how to put them together then you can find one here. I have to admit to not putting the full 11 pins in my frames so I guess I will just have to see how they hold up!!
 
I am now all ready with my supers...lets just hope the weather co-operates. Don't the completed frames look lovely!!
