BEEKEEPING IN THE NORTHEAST - An account of my beekeeping, not a treatise of expertise, but for friends & family who wish to keep bees vicariously through me, and for the occasional apiarist passer-by.

A long time beekeeping friend who has stopped for awhile to pursue other talents, lent us her old extractor. We had a bit of a time putting it together but it turned out so well in the end.
Nice to save an old machine from the dump.
Pulled four medium frames from a honey super on top of my 10 frame hive in our garden.
Pulled three shallow frames each from honey supers on top of two hives on the hayfield.
