Extraction preparations

Got the call from Tim last night since he is coordinating the extraction machine for getting the honey out of several people’s frames. He said likely this weekend or early next week it will happen. He said to wear old shoes that will become “honey shoes” everafter, since everything will get a touch of honey on it!
He said I should go back and check my hive to see if the remaining honey was capped off and to retrieve that for our extractions. Also I am to dump the “bad hive” in with the good hive since it won’t make it thru the winter, or much longer, on its own.

I won’t need bottles yet, as we will just get the honey into food grade pails right now.
I have commissioned a talented friend of mine to assist in my label design.
