Steps of the Honey Harvest
« on: July 17, 2021, 01:52:28 pm »
We did so many ponds this year, and built last fall, plus redid my floors, I've forgotten how to harvest honey. I haven't forgotten when. It's time.

Going to dig my empty buckets out of the bee shed, break out the extractor, bring the utility table in from the garage.... we had a good flow, I haven't been in the hives since Maybe March????  Then it was a peek, see eggs, add feed jar, wish luck. 

We've had a great flow.  So wish me luck.  And if there is a sticky for the steps, could you post a link?

Not a bad idea...
Is there any member here who wants to create the thread?
I think it would be a good one to sticky on the beekeeping 101 forum.

I'll have a go at it, but don't have a ton of time before we move on to the next site (backpacking across door county at the moment).
Keeping of bees is like the direction of sunbeams.

Great idea for this winter if someone has time.

Gypsi, I did my version in Beginning Beekeeping and BK has a video listed from the year before.
