Honey Harvest


Today we harvested our honey.

We started a fire in the pot-belly stove,
Strapped the extractor to the work bench,
And spun honey to our heart's content.
Uncapping
Uncapped frame

Extracting
Liquid Gold!
*Honeybees are the only insect that produce a food consumed by humans.
*Honeybees visit about 2 million flowers to make one pound of honey.
*One pound of honey equals the life work of approximately 300 bees and a flight distance of two or three times around the earth.
*Honey speeds the healing of open wounds and also combats infection.
*Honeybees never sleep!


Proverbs 16:24
"Pleasant words are a honeycomb,
sweet to the soul and healing to the bones."
