Later today will be pulling honey off the hives... I'm hoping for at least 6 full illinois supers of honey from this extraction (there will be another extraction because the girls are still bringing in good nectar, but I need to make some space for them to put the nectar in and I can't build it as fast as they need it. It looked like they had a heckuva lot of capped honey when I peeked a couple of days ago though. If I get enough honey to sell that I can afford it, I'm going to buy a nine frame maxant electric extractor (really just 6 frames since I run all mediums, but whatever)... and a new pair of gloves... well, I'll buy the new pair of gloves regardless of whether I buy the extractor or not... happy birthday to me (but really I need a new pair of gloves, I wore a hole in my current pair that is just being covered by tape right now). I was origianlly planning to do a cutout, but I never heard back from the guy and I know he was wanting it done faster than I could get to it, so I'm assuming he got someone else to do it already.
