A Bit O' Honey









We cracked open the hive yesterday in order to harvest some honey and document the process this here bee blog.

Good news: the hive is going gangbusters.

Semi-Bad news: our queen was more ambitious than we thought and there is now tons of brood in the top box mixed in with all that honey. We weren't willing to destroy all of those eggs & larvae, so we left them alone.

We had one frame of all honey and we crushed, strained, made a video and got it in our hair. We managed to get five little jars of it (pictured above). The honey tastes amazing and we are a little sad that we don't have enough to share with everyone yet. Here's to loads of honey in June!
