Cutting off cappings
Not quite sure exactly what I was doing but it looks like I am preparing to claw the comb out with my right hand
Comb filled with honey
Frames in the extractor
Empty frames with honey spun out
Honey draining from the extractor
As usual Andy had his video camera so there just might be a honey extraction video in our future. You could see the determination on his face if only this was actually in focus.
We owe a big thanks to Mark who saved us from being blundering idiots. He saved the day when I panicked and generously donated his time and resources. When all was said and done he didn't let me help clean up the mess I made at his house and sent me home with jars for bottling. There is no thank you that actually shows our appreciation but I tried with some of the herbed biscuits I made last week and a gallon of his favorite sweet tea.
