We have been seriously busy the last few days spending around three hours each evening working on the hives.We are still on a steep learning curve so we are definitely not working efficiently but we are learning a lot, every day.
This morning we went to Sjuntiö to the supply shop because we needed to buy feeding frames to add to the hives as we remove the honey. We also decided to buy some langstroth boxes because we have realised that it will be too complicated, in fact almost impossible to get farrar frames throughout all the hives before winter.
And... I bought myself a pair of size 8 gloves because I'm "all thumbs" wearing Stefan's gloves!
We also had coffee and fresh pulla at the shop, as usual.
So, as of this evening, we have harvested 91 farrar frames with honey cakes and 4 langstroth frames. And we haven't finished yet.
We have been voice recording what we do to each hive on Free Recorder (on my Lumia phone) and then using that info to update this blog. All the details are on the hives' pages (see drop down menu).. But we still manage to get really mixed up!
