greg had to pull the super off the hive he put on 10 days ago because he assembled the frames wrong. he did it yesterday morning and left the frames for me to take care of. in 10 days, the bees went from flat foundations to combs filled with honey and capped (in the beginning stages).
this is not bubbling from heating, it's bubbling from pouring and scraping. a giant sticky mess of goodness! when i'm done scraping the last 3 frames, i'll set the wax mixture in a stock pot with a lid on the sidewalk to extract it with the sun.
so far, i've yielded about 1 gallon and i expect when it's all done, i'll have 2 gallons. he put 3 supers on their hive and will add 2 more in the next week or two.
between hand extracting honey and hand pitting 4 gallons of cherries, my week has been full!
