Final Summer Harvest

Today I made my 'mountain run' and pulled honey from 8 colonies and got 18 boxes off.  It was a beautiful warm clear day and tomorrow it is supposed to hit 95 degrees.  Perfect for extracting!

You can see that my truck was pretty heavy laden with all that honey!

Truck loaded

After I off loaded the honey, there were some drippings on the tool box that the bees wanted to clean up.  these were from my hives in town and perhaps some 'riders' from my mountain yards.  They are very tenacious and do not want to give up the honey easily!
