Honey Harvest – Late Summer 2016

Honey Harvest – Late Summer 2016

Saturday I opened the hives and decided it was time to harvest. IMG_8640


One frame, not ready to harvest on the left, four frames full of honey on the right.

There were several frames in the super that were full of honey and ready to be pulled.


After extracting out 7 frames, I ended up with 23lbs of honey, plus a little extra that I used to cover some whole comb that I had to rip out.

Ball jars hold 10oz in the 1/2 pint and 2.5lbs in the qt jars.
