Just curious how people celebrate Halloween in other countries, if you do celebrate.
Ok, so back to the bees. They are not happy campers this time of year. They know winter is coming, and I've been getting their hives ready. Reducing the size of their entrance, making sure they have enough food, and taking off extra supers full of honey that they won't need. They get mad when I do this. They think they need all this honey, they don't. I had one bee that refused to leave me alone on Tuesday evening, even an hour after taking the super off the hive. She found me on the front porch and, I had to leave the premises! My Shug said when I left they left him alone!
I've done posts before about extracting. It's a lot of hot, heavy, hard work. And when I put the honey in quart jars, which has been the request of a few people, I have a lot of time to wait for the honey to drip. First from the extractor into the bucket with filters. Three to be exact.
