Honey Harvest

One super-frame filled with capped honey.

Filling the first honey-bear.

One pound of our first honey crop.

A sample of the 27 lbs of honey we harvested today. We left one on the hive that was not yet capped off, so we'll check on it in a couple of weeks.

You have a great site! Colorado is such a beautiful area. Great pics! How did you convince the wife to extract in HER kitchen?

Thanks Chris,
It's not really the kitchen, it's the mud-room. But we did cover the floor and counter-tops with plastic before we started.
