    Thought I was done, but apparently will be able to harvest at least 2 or 3 supers of goldenrod. Looking forward to that. -js

    We redid extracting room and put in larger system. What I thought would be a 3 or 4 week job turned into 2 1/2 months. Redid floor putting in drain under cowen system, filled in pit and installed auger to sump mounted under converor . Put in maxant spinner. Then three motors decided to quit in two days...one had just been rebuilt. The result is normally I'm done extracting in august. Still have honey on 370 hives. Working festivals on weekends then rain during week. Most have 4 to 5 mediumns . So i figure 1400 to go. Should be in Florida for pepper but here I am in KY. Anyone looking for a job?? Oh what a mess...anything that can go wrong has....hard to pull honey extract bottle and deliver along with festivals. Stay busy this time of year bottling and with festivals let alone extracting.

    Finished up yesterday. The 3 month siege is officially over and it's also the reason I'm stalling in my office this morning....today is cleanup.
    I feel your pain, been there done that. That happens a lot after a remodel, everything looks great until you actually start using it, then the problems begin. Hey, at least you have honey to run.

    Amen to that. Many of us, like myself, won't turn on the spinner this year.

    Cool Re: Oct 1st today who's still extracting honey???

    Rick, I know what you mean. I setup a new extracting setup in a new building this year. Then honey started coming in 3 weeks early this year. Hurry , Hurry, Hurry.
    Here comes the rain again.
    Cleaning up machines and emptying tanks today. Last batch of wax going in the melter.

    Just got the last of my honey off of the hives today. Colonies are looking good and strong.
