Just wanted to share some photos & videos from this weekends harvest, my first go! All went well & now I have a big bucket 3/4 of delicious raw pure unadulterated honey to share with my friends & family.
It was a nice mild day, I started the harvest at 9AM, did 2 frames at a time, let the frames drain for 3 hours before moving onto the next 2. The bees werent very active, I think they were all staying inside where it was warm. A far cry from the day before where it got to 44 degrees C!
