Yesterday was a pretty nice day, weather-wise. Sun wasn't in the forecast, but we had a lot of it, so I spent part of yesterday morning finishing up the hive stand. It holds me up just fine on either side, since I planned it to hold two hives.
So now the hive is all set. I'll just buy my bee supplies from Ruhl when I pick up the bees. I think for starters I can get away with just a veil and jacket, and a hive tool, not that I need one right away. I already have the spray bottle for the sugar syrup spray.
The next post on bees should be all about the installation.
