Last weekend, my husband harvested the first of our honey. We got about 33lbs. We still have 2 more boxes to go once they are ready to harvest. Hopefully, the weather will be nice when they are! The bees don't care too much for overcast days.
|The honey frames still in the box.|
|The cappings on the frames show that|
the honey is ready to harvest.
Cutting off the cappings.
|Frame with cappings cut off, in the extractor|
waiting to be spun out.
|You can't tell from this picture (my camera froze frame)|
but these 4 frames are actually spinning, extracting the honey.
|The final product! Isn't it pretty?|
It tastes so great!
