Im doing well also thanks for asking. For some reason i cant reply to your message so ill just have to post it.

Im keeping buckfast bees in a Ten-Frame Langstroth Hive. This is also my first year keeping bees. They are doing really good as far as i can tell. I just added the second deep brood box a week ago and they seem to be building up the colony really fast so im super excited.

I am also wanting to start more hives next year. I think ill try to do some artificial swarming to split my hive up come next spring. Maybe we can work something out and possibly trade a queen cell or something. I read allot of good things about the Italians but i wanted to try the buckfast bee really bad. I think it would be cool to maybe have multiple hives of different kinds of bees.

So how are you liking your top bar hive. I don't know much about them. Are you able to add more brood space. There is all so much to know it makes me feel ignorant when i ask questions lol.
