Sorry about yesterday, I didn’t remember to post until I was nearly asleep. But I had to tell you about the honey. And here are a couple of pictures.
As you see, Al is starting off in the simplest way, cutting the honeycomb into a bowl, melting it over warm water, letting the wax rise and then lifting it off and then rewarming and filtering the honey. There’s all sorts of equipment he can buy, a centrifuge and so on, but this will do him for now. He says that this amount at a time is very simple and manageable and a lot less messy than he expected.
Nothing else to write about now, apart from biking into town to go to the bank and get some vegetables, nothing’s happened here.
Oh, by the way, today is the last day of the English asparagus picking season, so if you want some, hot-foot it to the shops to get it, right now.
