Some random thoughts and observations about life here and elsewhere
Tuesday, August 4, 2015
After having bee stuff stored on the porch, in the basement, in the barn, and in in several other places in the house, at last everything will have a a place to go. With the cut outs & swarms, I'm up to ten hives now this year. We harvested from only three, but got 15 gallons of honey from four supers and a deep. Next year should be even better and if nothing else a whole lot easier. I still have to wire it with outlets and hang some salvaged light fixtures, and add something better than a hose for the water line, I'll tap into the overhead line from the house to the barn, at the pole about 15 feet to the right of the shed. Then racks for frames, a work bench & some shelves.

Some of the frames were light colored, some really dark. I just let them mix. The honey is much darker than last year
