My hive that died recently left me with 10 frames of honey. So I froze the frames and today decided to extract 2 frames. I did the crush and strain method and ended up with 5-1/2 lbs of delicious honey. It was so great to have this honey as I never had a drop of honey last year. I gave 2 frames to my other beehive, (just to top them off as they are strong and eating lots). That leaves me with 6 more frames to extract. I will wait until next month just to make sure the other hive will not need any of it.
Reminded me why I got into the bees in the first place.
