This blog is basically a beekeeping record for an experimental "top-bar" beehive design that utilizes larger semi-framed comb and a shorter body. This reduces the surface area to volume ratio. This blog also highlights how a complete noob goes about learning how to keep bees. I want to include the mistakes, because we generally learn more from our mistakes.
OK! The real reason I am including the mistakes is that I wouldn't have any material if I cut out all of the mistakes.

First Blog Entry
I'm posting this first blog entry to see what a post will look like and to see if I can link up YouTube videos that I have created earlier. I must warn the viewer that hive inspections can be rather boring to watch. It will be especially so with the earlier videos. I am trying to get every inspection on video this first year of beekeeping so that I have an inspection record. This is part of the process that I am using to learn by.
