Spinnin' the Honey

We had a much smaller crowd this year for our honey harvest.  It was just the 5 of us until Tommy, a neighbor boy, came to see if the boys could play.  He was quick to jump in and help with the crank.  We only had our hives which was around 38 frames to spin so it took us about 6 hours to prep, spin, and clean up the honey.  Clint had a soccer game this morning so we didn't get started until after 11 and we had to be done by 6:30 because Darryl and I were headed to Hale Theater with the Goodes, so we made sure we were staying on task.  When it was all done we ended up with about 102 lbs. of honey, most of which we gave away to people who had helped throughout the year.  It was a good family time and I was proud of the boys for working as hard as they did and sticking with it until it was all done.  I sure love those three boys!
