Warmer weather, – extracting honey.

It is well that the weather is warm today as the honey I have been extracting is mostly from Oil Seed Rape (Canola) to those who speak American.) This honey sets rapidly once away from the warmth of the hive and even there it would have set given another week.

I have also been melting beeswax into olive oil today to make some more handcream. Later this week that will go into jars ready for sale.IMG_00132013-04-23_10-04-30
