This top bar was almost full sooooo I decided to take several bars of honey ---back to where the brood comb ended. There is plenty of time for them to rebuild &replace the honey. For a 1st year hive, I am impressed with the strength & productivity of the top bar hive. Both of my tb's have been very easy to work. I did not get one full bar out at a time because the bees built the comb at a slight diagonal on the bars. I just sliced through with a long knife but not as pretty as it could be. I am still working on the reason for this.
