Honey harvest

We finally harvested honey from 1 of our 3 hives. It is a traditional hive and not the flow hive. This is 5 racks. To say we are happy is an understatement. We know we made mistakes along the way this year but what a learning experience it has been.  I am going to let the pictures do the talking now.

  1. Wonderful wonderful wonderful. I’m applauding your sweet harvest.
    Ah yes, the mistakes are very helpful learning in the dynamics of any new craft. Are Bees a craft or a hobby or something else?
    I think you all are well on your way to having a constant honey crop and maybe a business. I hope you’ll share some photos of some of your tasty treats you make with it.

    • THe bees are a hobby. My personal goal is to have enough honey that we don’t have to buy honey throughout the year. Then I will use the beeswax I collect for my personal lotions and lip balm I make.
