Honey from the flow hive

We finally decided to harvest our flow hive. He was able to do it wearing shorts and without smoking or disturbing the bees at all. Amazing! Other than one bee who was determined to protect his hive and finally got a sting in on my husband’s forehead, it was uneventful. Uneventful but productive and satifying! As the pictures show, truly honey on tap. Much easier and neater to harvest than the traditional hive that we harvested earlier this summer.

Now on to start learning about what to do and setting up the hives for fall and winter. Not bad for the first year as beekeepers!

    A flow hive looks like the way to go. Wow, honey on tap. That’s a beautiful thing. Less stress for the bees and for you two too. 🙂

  3. Hi Nadine, I wanted to let you know that I edited in a photo of the inside of my potato bin in my post and added a bit of a description too. If you get a few minutes come over and see it. If you have any questions, I’ll be happy to answer them, if I can. 🙂
