    I'll try to only post food pictures after sundown! You may want to avoid this thread when you're really hungry, though... for some reason we tend to ruminate on good food.

    SCG, was that you with bee hives?
    I'm trying to inspect mine today but the weather is really crappy. I'm hoping for a little sunlight to get the stingers out of the hive for a while.

    I am one of a couple on here with hives. Last time I went in the little stinkers had made comb in all kinds of places where they shouldn't have essentially gluing each box to the box below and above it. And the queen was laying eggs in my honey super.

    I cleaned up a lot of it, but they were really starting to get angry with me, so I closed up before making it nice and pretty again.

    On the upside, I have a canning jar of wax that I've scraped out of the hive sitting next to my computer. I open it and huff it every so often. My name is SCG and I love the way the inside of a bee hive smells... so sweet. I can walk next to the hive and smell it, too.

    Propolis, wax, pollen, honey - [​IMG] the smells of a bee colony. I miss keeping bees. Had a dream several nights ago that I was establishing a hive using a package of bees. SCG, do you think that your colony needs another brood super?
