Busy as a Bee

My bees are really busy right now.  They have filled 80% of the frames on their 2 deeps with brood and nectar for their own honey.  I suppose it’s time to put on at least one honey box.

The whiter honeycomb area is new comb.  The “colored” cells have different types of nectar in them, and the left side, the smoothed over side, is where the new bees will emerge from.

They still have the tendency to make some burr comb . . .

I think I might actually get some honey in my first year of beekeeping!
