Honey

Friday the hubs stayed home to work on the yard.  He got the backyard mowed and then noticed the bees being most active.  He checked them out and realized that the honey needed to be harvested.

One full super. He left two frames in the new super and brought the rest in the house and began to harvest by hand,  We do not have a spinner, this means my kitchen is sticky.

We have approximately 2 gallons of honey that we need to strain one more time and then bottle.   Then I get to figure out what to do with the super sticky wax, how to clean it and then my goal is candles. 

I am so thankful to have my hubs that deals with the bees and my very own honey to help combat my vicious allergies.  Honey for my tea , yummy!!!

Do you partake of local honey?
