Honey Harvest – I Love My Bees

Screen Shot 2017-09-27 at 5.07.57 PM

Yet another hobby to chat about.. . . . . . never a dual moment here!

Being a new beekeeper I was thrilled to extract our very first batch of honey from our hives yesterday.  Just look at it, 4 quarts of the purest clover honey.

This is what a frame of capped honey looks like.  I got to process 8 1/2 frames and it taste better than any other honey I’ve ever tasted, probably because I have such an investment in it, time and money.  🙂

Normally you don’t get to keep any of the honey your new bees make in the first year because they may need it to get through the Winter, but one of our new hives is extra strong and made an additional box full.  I also got to harvest our first bees wax too.  I’m looking forward to making something from it this Winter.  I’m so excited!

This is my bees cleaning up the honey left in the  bowls I used during the extraction and what was left in the frames in the bee box.  No waste!

Helping the bees survive is sure rewarding.  🙂  If you are thinking about becoming a beekeeper, please do, the bees need us.

Thanks for stopping by. . . . .

Huge Hugs,

    The honey looks great. My husband’s grandfather was a beekeeper. He used to sell honey to Henry Ford. He was named beekeeper of the century here in Michigan about 25 years ago. He’s gone now and his sons have also since retired from the bee business, but when his youngest uncle sold the business, he had it wrote up in the contract that he could continue to get all the honey he ever wants. Their big business was in South Dakota. In the winter, they would ship his bees out to California to work out there and then back to SD for spring and summer.

    Beautiful honey! My dad was a beekeeper and my husband took over when my dad died…until we found out he was allergic to bee stings. I sure miss having fresh honey. You are right…it is the best honey. Thanks for sharing.

    • Well, in the Summer I’m so busy it would make your head swim, lol. I’m enjoying the Autumn season when things slow down a bit. I find I don’t like to sit idle for too long. 🙂
