Second Hive Syndrome

All the pieces parts of my second hive arrived this week, and I’ll soon be putting it all together in preparation for the spring package.

In the end, I went with the exact same configuration as my first hive. Not only will they look nice side by side, but I would hate for the new queen to be jealous of Large Marge’s hive.
