We actually waited until the afternoon because my dad wanted to do the extracting at the warmest point in the day. And we did not have to do the big job on our own! For a couple hours at the beginning we had a guy from church come over. He is wanting to get into beekeeping, so helping us out was a great chance for him to learn, and sure made things easier for us! After he left, a friend of my dad's came over and helped out.
My dad scrapped the cappings off while the guy from church spun the extractor.
I made sure the jars of honey did not overflow. :)
This is a close-up of a frame of honey. See the white "ashy" stuff on top? that's the cappings. Under that is the honey.
I think we are going to be well supplied with honey for quite some time!
