For the second time this month, we found that we needed to harvest honey. Those bees have been busy bees. We took the first honey super (placed in May) from the Minnesota bees, which was now fully capped. We also took the oldest honey super from the Italians. That brings the tally up to 3 harvested supers for the Italians and one for the Minnesotans.
This is Becky from her vantage point high up on the ladder getting ready to harvest from the Minnesota Hygienic bees.
Here are some of the frames of capped honey we took today.
And here are just two jars of the 60 lbs of freshly bottled honey we processed today.
