Here a few shots of us extracting honey.   The basement apartment is empty so we set up in that kitchen this year.  I lot easier with nothing in the way.


Best looking honey spinner around.  And the extractor ain't bad either.

Oh ya, found this old frame.   It may be older than I.  It has 2 nails to make it fit where it was either broken or cut short.  Hey, what ever it takes, they bees don't mind.  I have a lot of frames that look like Swiss cheese from moths.

Nice... I think me and the wife will be extracting in our basement apartment in the fall since doing it in our apartment really took some doing with everything in the way.

Here is the drop of this years honey crop going into the filter bucket.   




It was a pretty good year with the honey.  It was very light in color and seems to be going very quickly.  The wife has already sold over half of the crop (by volume).   Maybe one day we will start to make money at this hobby if it is possible to cut my spending.

I never made a count.   Brandie was selling it by the gallon to her regulars.  I guess we filled 4 pails worth.
