Leaning Tower of Beeza

The bees have been so busy during this hot, dry Spring - the honey flow is massive.  So the hive ended up a bit massive too...
 We took 2 supers of rape honey off on 12th May. and because we weren't really keeping an eye on them, had to take off 4 today!
Cutting off the cappings.
The extractor
Jed really loves his honey and is always hanging around for tastes - think he's OD'd a bit today.

I used to keep four hives, but then I moved to town and couldn't watch them proerly, so got rid of them. Wish I had them back now that I'm in the country again.
