Snow is still here. I know it is only March here in Teton Valley, but who is not ready for springs? March arrives and the weather warms just a little; I am anxious to get into the garden.
My beekeeping experience started in the spring of 2009; when I stumbled upon Phil Chandler’s website biobees.com. Then I discovered backyardhive.com and ordered their dvd on top bar beekeeping. After watching the dvd and reading more material I decided that building a top bar beehive would be within my carpentry ability. Following the plans from Phil Chandler’s website I started my first top bar beehive.
This is my new beehive design. It is a variation of the top-bar beehive; I call it the T Slant hive. The concept is that the bees start at the top of the hive and work their way down.
