Ladybeard Bees: Harvest 2015

This is my 3rd lucky harvest year as a hobby beekeeper. In spite of an incident that involved angry bees sneaking into my shoes and a new rule that I will always duct tape my shoes closed in the future, the rest of the bee-milking went perfectly!

It was a lot of hard work and I could not have processed the honey without a lot help... My mom lent me her kitchen & was in charge of bottling the sweet sweet gold.  Husband was the muscle in charge of carrying heavy stuff and cranking the extractor. I was the uncapping queen, slicing all of the capped frames open and emptying out the extractor after spinning.
Now team Lady Beard Bees is exhausted and resting our sticky feet.
