It's the summer months here in the Philippines and at long last, after 2 months of delay, our honey season has started!
It's so wonderful to see capped honey combs and I am totally excited to do our very first honey extraction!
Never mind that we started out with 11 colonies last June and now we are down with 5 at 3 levels each. (bad me) I think all my mistakes are worth it. Experience at this point is still the best teacher.
Bought so many hives at one time even though i don't have any knowledge on beekeeping. Did a lot of experiments: shift from white sugar to brown sugar (big mistake) to high fructose corn syrup.
Now, we'll just have to wait and see... (Note: I really need to get an assistant to lift those supers... to think i keep the supers at 9 frames instead of 10.)
