Wonderful pictures of your bee keeping, Thanks for sharing with us. Your hive super is huge, for a new hive I wasn't expecting it to be so large. I'd love to have a hive but haven't done it yet. I've had acres of aster, milk thistle and goldenrod for decades...it looks messy but it provides for the bees, insects, birds and animals. So far no one has come and told me I have to mow it down because it's a weed menace!! Most of our acreage, aside from where the horses live, looks like yours...we have a nice section of forest too.
I'm a bit south of you just north of Gettysburg.
Thanks again...nice pictures and it's wonderful you have a bee whisperer to teach you. His name is the same as mine..he's just missing an 'e'.. Good on ya!
