What a way to spend December 1st! My husband and I took 16 frames of honey from our hives--just half the honey the bees had stored. We extracted it most of Saturday afternoon, and my husband was teasing me about being "cranky". We have a manual extractor which we crank and the centrifugal force extracts the honey from the frames. One can get pretty sticky spending an afternoon with honey! We have a large pot full of honey, and the comb is draining into another tub. We aren't sure, but it is likely we have about 75 lbs. of honey. Later this week we'll be bottling--another sticky job (but we lick our fingers a lot!).
