Our first honey harvested by my honey!

Todd brought the boxes in,
 scrapped the caps off of the honeycomb with a hot knife,
 spun the comb really fast to release the honey,
 and then filtered the honey, twice.
There it is . . . our beautiful raw honey.  
We got 18 pounds from our first harvest!  We are hoping to get more next year as the bees will not have to work at building all the honeycomb because we left it for them to use again.  Also, Todd is thinking about getting some more hives.  What a successful project!
