    Default Extracting

    My other half was away yesterday so I took the opportunity to destroy the kitchen by extracting a load of supers. You should have seen the state of the place yesterday evening. I started into the apple wine as the last frames were spinning and lost the urge to tidy up. The floor was like that stuff you spread on a board to catch mice and I half expected to find the dog immobilised when I came down the stairs this morning. I got up at 6.30 to tidy up and I think I have taken the bad look off the thing although that will be confirmed later this afternoon. There were 11 wet supers stacked up in the middle of the floor and I got them out to the shed. Floor mopped, extractor hosed out, work surfaces cleaned, dishwasher full of stuff covered in wax and propolis.

    Do you think I will get away with it?

    I doubt it! Did you remember to wash every door handle 3 times - even the ones you can't remember using?

    That is the kind of detail I don't really want to think about. I thought door handles were usually self cleaning.

    Oh Dear. If you haven't got a dog house you can come here for a night or 2.

    There's something to be said for losing bee power by shedding swarms, keeping your bees in the neonic-soaked East of Scotland, and finally using frames for cut comb rather than spin-out extraction.

    So far so good. No mention of door handles.
