Honey


The honey has been extracted and it weighs in at 234 pounds this year. Much better than last year.

60lbs was enough for me especially with a hand crank extractor. We have given away well over 1/2 of it already.

Tango, do you realize how much the shipping would cost? Besides I always recommend local raw honey.

Auntie, I have been tasting it and it's a good year, and the smell of all those full five gallon buckets is amazing.

Darev, I'm waiting on the porch.

F Lee, It should all be bottled and labeled by next week.

Critter, given away? You are devaluing what we do? Honey isn't an annoying by-product that you have to try to dump. It is a valuable golden substance where as it takes 12 worker bees their entire life's work to produce one tea spoon of honey. Think about it.

I gave jars away to family and friends who deeply appreciated it. I also used some jars to schmooze a few work contacts. My DH is taking 6 jars back to share with family. 2 mayo sized jars went to an expert distiller to become mead.

I have a few small jars left, but mostly the rest is in big jars for us to use until next years harvest.
