Winter honey for Sue

Last weekend Amy and I helped LA Backwards Beekeeper Sue put an escape board in her hive stack so that after a couple of days the top two supers would be relatively free of bees and easier to harvest. Sue is holding the escape board in the photo above.

I went back there on Tuesday, and Sue & I found that her bees had been working hard since last June!

We filled one bucket with comb...

...and had to get a back-up container for the rest.

Sue later reported having a hell of a sugar crash from too much honey sampling while doing the crush & strain on the comb (this happens to all of us).

Looks like Sue will have a bounty of Camp Waterloo honey!
