Honey harvest

I have been meaning to post these pictures for a while, but haven’t had the time until now. Do you know what this is?

It’s honey harvesting at Buzz and Fuzz! Honey harvesting is definitely my favorite fall chore. Of course I didn’t think to take pictures of the process until the last step. Hopefully I’ll remember that next year.

A quick and brief summary of the honey harvesting process:
1. Remove the honey supers from the hives.
2. Cut the caps off the top of the honey comb.
3. Spin the honeycomb/frames in an extractor.
4. Strain the honey, bottle, and enjoy.

In my humble opinion, there is no honey as sweet as the honey from a backyard beehive!
