Tip for Storing Honey Frames Before Extraction


honeyToday I want to share a tip that has made my beekeeping life a little easier. As I go through my hives, and pull off capped frames of honey I want to make sure that I have enough frames to make it worth extracting.

It tends to take me a full weekend to extract, most of that being filtering and cleanup, and it seems that the cleanup is the same no matter how much I have extracted, so I don’t want to got through the trouble for only a box or two (more…)

What he is talking about is swaging .22lr spent cases to begin the process of turning them into  .223 jacketed bullets.  Which, while labor intensive, may just become an extremely valuable skill. (more…)
