Irresistable Photo's

Ok, I intended to take a photo of the honey but, I had to get this shot.
Fresh Honey and Fresh Veggies.

Is it just me or is this just adorable?

Ok, here is the photo of a representative sample of the honey that I just extracted yesterday. This is a lighter honey this year and I prefer this to darker honey. I still have another hive to extract soon.

Honey Harvest Today

Updated Garden Photo.
Blanc Dubois Grape Vines. They are pierce disease resistant.

Perfectly capped honey. All of the frames were capped like this.

Another capped frame.

This came from 2 of my hives.

Today I finally had time to harvest the honey. I opened the first hive and I was surprized to see that every single frame was full of capped honey, pristine white. I ended up with about 8 gallons of honey from two of the hives. I could not harvest the third hive because I ran out of containers, so I'll harvest it later. I have never harvested such a bountiful honey crop. Check out the photo's. I also included updated photo's of the garden above.
