Hello fellow beekeepers
thought I would share the following images of the honey frames we are harvesting at present, just 10 full depth frames (all drawn out and nicely capped) and these were added to the hive on Jan 4, 2017, so just under four months ago. They got off to a slow start post the christmas cheer I suspect.
Anyway, these frames are all from a single ten frame full depth brood box hive as that is my preference and the results of what can be achieved when managing your bee hives in this way. Also, these were straight foundation frames so the bees had to first draw the foundation before they could fill them. No doubt you too are all enjoying a great honey harvest this year, please share your results on this forum as its always great to see what others are achieving. Oh, and yes the they were uncapped and harvested and placed back on the hive so I will post additional pictures of the planned future harvest prior to getting them ready for winter later this month.
Oh, and yes, the first images shows some extra comb that the bees were building between the top of the Super and the hive mat, that was simply scrumptious…
