The days are now getting really short. Yesterday we had the first frost of the autumn. Not a severe one, but noticeable.

We have stored in large buckets in previous years the pressed honeycomb in the expectation that at some point we will get round to extracting the beeswax. We are a step closer that doing that but first we have washed the honeycomb in water which we have put into large pans. We will be using this honey water for brewing (and there was a great deal more honey washed out of the honeycomb than we expected).
