WOW! It certainly was a long day today, the entire day spent extracting and bottling honey. We couldn't have asked for a more perfect day though it was really warm so the honey "flow" was great, ran really quick and smooth.
This morning when my fellow beekeepers got here we set up shop for the day, of course the *honey extractor was the most important but the first thing we needed to do was uncap the honey to do this you use a *uncapping knife that heats up as you run it down the *comb it takes the "cap" or the top layers of wax of so the honey will come out.
Once all the comb forms are spun we can pour that honey into a separator or a colander, in here the honey will separate from the wax
*Frame - four pieces of wood designed to hold honey comb, consisting of a top bar, a bottom bar, and two end bars.
