Hive ideas part 2

Well, after a talk with Fuzzy (my bee mentor), I'll need to go back to using 10 frame supers this year. Seems that if you give the little buzzers 9 undrawn frames they will draw out strange comb. Fuzzy did that himself and learned that lesson. Time to change my order if it's not too late. It's good that I learned this now and not 8 months from now when I am looking forward to honey.
