Angie and I inspected the hives again on Friday, July 22nd. Despite the unbearably hot weather, the girls are hard at work doing what they do..............raising brood and making honey! Hive #1, which was started from a 3 lb. package of bees in April, is thriving. They are working on their second medium honey super, drawing comb nicely, and starting to fill the cells with honey. That being said...........we checked the first honey super, and decided that since they have it filled with capped honey, we could safely take another frame of honey and extract it.
Angie holds a frame of capped honey. This frame will yield just over a quart of honey.
