Final honey extraction

beekeeping frame It is time for the final honey extraction of the year.

More pictures will follow, but here is the first, showing me checking a ‘super frame’.

This is also the publicity picture I have supplied for this year’s Chelmsford Ideas Festival, where I will be giving my ‘A Year In Beekeeping’ talk.

This frame isn’t ready, as there is no wax capping over the stored honey, meaning that the water content is still too high and the honey would¬†ferment under storage.
