Come on in, Honey!

No, I'm not talking to you. I finally have enough honey on the hive for a decent harvest. There is about 60 pounds so, I've ordered an extractor and all the parts nesesary for a honey harvest. While this is not a huge crop I am quite impressed given every book I read says that "...you will not get a honey crop in the first year.". I have finally proved countless publishers wrong! This will be quite exiting. Every beekeeper I've spoken to says that bees will fight to the death to keep their honey. So, I guess I'll have to suit up, duck tape all the cracks and have a well lit smoker. I'm thinking today I'll put on a super just to see if the bees can fill it. Oh and, I've sampled the honey and observed it's color. It's about a medium table grade and tastes like palmetto honey. I'll probably be able to harvest in about a week and a half or so.
