Getting ready for bees

Friday after work, my brother helped assemble frames for the brood box portion of the hive. This is the lower portion of the hive where the queen will lay eggs.


After nailing the frames together, we inserted the wax foundation. 
Full of frames!
The bees arrive Monday or Tuesday by mail. Today we are setting up the hive in the orchard.
