Our interesting and fun March 1, 2009 snow provided a great background for a photo of Sam Strickland's hives in Indian Springs, AL.  The hive on the left was started as a nuc by Hugh Feagle last year, and placed in the current location in Spring 2008.  The hive body was home-built.  The first super above the hive body was built in the 2008 JCBA Beginners Beekeeping Class.  The next super up is home-built, and the top super is built from a kit from Walter T. Kelley Co.  The top super is being used to provide space for a quart feeder jar (placed on top of the inner cover).  This hive provided many frames of honey last year.  The hive on the right was started from a package of bees ordered Spring 2008 through JCBA.  All three of the supers are built from kits from Walter T. Kelley Co.  The top super is also used in this hive for space for the feeding jar.  This hive provided several frames of honey last year.
