I am hoping for honey next year: this year was sort of a wash.
The thing is, can I just take a frame of honey out when I need it, so that I don't have to mess with granulation and re-heating? Or would it granulate anyways?
I know of a lady who is interested in selling my honey with her vegetables, and it would be easier, I think, to extract a few jars worth as they are needed.
I have a 2 frame extracter, and it would take a long time to extract a years worth at a time. However, I COULD easily extract a supers worth at a time, bottle it, and just extract more as it was needed.
I will only have the one hive to extract to start with. I hope to end the year with more than that, but I don't expect much honey (if any) from new hives.
