Welcome to Eddie O Bee Adventure


This should be interesting. I have no experience in beekeeping, except what I can glean from others.

For timeline . . . the install date will be April 22, 2012

Please comment. I need all the help I can get!

First honey--just a few spoonfuls

The comb that I cut away from the last inspection was filled with sweet tasting honey/nectar. I placed it on a plate and brought it inside to add it to the comb collected from a previous inspections.

While putting away my inspection gear, my wife owned up to her title of McGyver and figured out a mini "crush and strain" system.

It is a 1 gallon Ziploc baggie, two clothespins, and a hole cut in the corner of the bag. We kept squeezing the comb, and letting it drain.

Here is our first honey
