We have a Warre Hive/foundation-less, year 2. They made it through the winter good, but we were light on bees prior to flows this year. We only took 2 pints of honey last year, and we probably shouldn't have even taken that. This year we way over planted crimson clover as winter cover crop with the intention of letting it flower and time it with nectar flows. We are right on target and for the past 2 weeks, the bees are hitting it super hard. Not to mention all the lady bugs, soldier beetles, hover flies, and bumblebees we are getting (100's at a time).
We have 2 brood and 1 honey super on now, and we will be checking this weekend or next to see where we are at for another honey super.
Here is our raised beds, and if you squint just right you see our yellow warre hive way in the back above the littler trellis:
Great post on your site Patrick.
