HONEY'S GRANDE DAME:
JOY STINGER

The great lady of honey (and honey bees),
Joy Stinger,
conducted her first harvest of 2013,
on a perfect August weekend.

With the help of her son, Karl, and
helper, Keaton, 25 "supers" were carefully
removed from their hives below.

The bees remain behind, waiting for their
freshly cleaned frames.

Can you spot the queen?
(Hint: she's got a white dot on her back.)

Rich with honey comb,
each frame is scraped to remove the
protective beeswax caps, and
then placed in the centrifuge to spin
the honey free.

This harvest is rich, thick and flavorful.
Thanks, Joy.
