Earlier in the yr when there is more of a flow, not that the bees aren't still making some honey down here still, they are, but nothing like the major flows, I don't transfer quite as much honey during cut outs, but this time of yr I give them much more for stores.
The guy who comissioned me to do this job's father n law's father used to keep bees and they were very excited I was removing them live and to get honey. They wanted honey, apparently their entire family wanted honey, fresh honey!
So, I filled that large pot in the pic with honey.
BTW, the guy's daughter was present, perhaps a 10yr old and she was just too cute, asked a gazillion questions about the bees and honey.
The wonderful thing that I noticed was that her parents did not mind one bit that she was asking me all of these questions.
I have run into many folks that usually tell their kids something like, "hey don't bother the man, he's working!" Which is a travesty IMO. Here was this sweet, innocent bright eyed little girl utterly excited and curious wanting and thirsting for knowledge.
I could have sat there for days answering her questions and sharing what I know about bees and honey, she deserved answers, it was very nice.
