My three hives are doing well, the one survivor from last year has filled the top super and the other two (one is a split of the survivor and the other a new package this year) are not far behind.

I bought an antique 2-frame hand crank extractor a couple months ago (thanks again Annette!), and now I am pulling out 2 frames at a time, draining them and replacing them for the bees to refill.  Two hours work to extract/strain/bottle 8 lbs of honey each weekend has been a joy. 

It's really been working out great for me.  Just thought I'd share, and take a moment to say thanks to everyone here for their support and helpful words.

Wow Rex that is such good news and I am glad the extractor is working out for you.  Carole was asking me how you were doing with it and hoped it was working for you.

I have sent you a PM
