Honey Extraction Party
Tonight we had a great time at the first ever Honey Extraction Party! At 6:30 pm we had people start rolling in to see the show. I had set up a couple of tables with bee equipment on display, and of course the honey extractor and box of 8 frames needing extracting. The extractor worked great and everyone had a turn at turning the crank and trying a taste of the honey. Those in attendance were Larry, Dawn, Aaron & Jessica Quicksall; Edward & Eileen Quicksall; Dick & Kim Loy & their two children; Brad & Dana Garbe; Jennifer Rodman & Elijah, Nicolas, Joshua, Zachary, & Benjamin; and Jim Kline. I will let the honey sit in the extractor for a few days to let it drip down the sides and collect in the bottom before draining.
