Honey Harvest 2009

Last week the honey was extracted and bottled– almost 60 pounds worth from a single hive!  Not bad for a first honey harvest.  I also have a bunch of wax to melt down and use for candles, but I'm saving that for a rainy day project.  I splurged and got some labels printed up, too.  Pretty cool!

  1. [this is good] Way cool! I’ve been starting to think, lately, that a hive might be interesting. I’m recovering from a bee phobia though, so I might have to work on that a bit longer. Plus, I don’t know that my neighbors would love it so much…

  2. Oh no!  It can be a little intimidating having the bees swarm around you, even without a bee phobia!  Still, it’s a great hobby if you can get past the psychological aspect of it.  I know even fully decked out with my bee suit, it is sometimes unnerving!
