Adding a second box to the green bee hive

We inspected the green hive today and the whole first box was full. They have been quite busy already. We saw capped brood and larva and even some capped honey. They have done a fine job building on the empty frames that had just a little wax strip at the top and bottom. So we added the second brood box with ten more foundation less frames. Jeff added a strip of wood into the top groove to give them something to get started with. Viridian was happy to eat some of the wax and propolis that we scraped off of the lid.
