Last week we harvested the first of our honey from our bee hives. Herman, Dan's bee mentor, helped us with the first batch. We have now cared for hives from establishment of a hive to harvesting honey. Now if we can keep our hives healthy and happy to harvest again we will be doing good.
Look at that beautiful honey
You would not believe how heavy these frames are they are full of honey at least 5 pounds
Everything goes into the first straining this removes all the big stuff
Next it is run through a fine mesh then it is ready to bottle. This year we got 48 pints from our 2 hives next spring it is possible to double that number...honey anyone?
When we were done we invited a few neighbors over for an evening of biscuits and honey
Now if we could some how fit a cow in the back yard we would be the land of milk and honey.
