Removing the Honey Super

We removed the honey super today. Much to our dissappointment, but not surprising we did not have any honey to harvest this year.
Sean is really enjoying beekeeping. He loves the smell of the propolis mixed with alcohol(used to remove propolis) and is a very good teacher.
Jake and Savannah came over for breakfast then stayed over while Mr. Sean opened the hive and they got to see the queen. She is doing a great job, there are lots of eggs and larva. Hopefully our hive will winter over well and we can prevent a swarm next year.
