First lot of honey bottled

Whilst David works on designing our labels and sourcing a suitable sized label, I get bottling.

The 12 frames we extracted from colony 1 at the Rectory, along with a couple from hive 1 in the garden, yielded 38 lbs of honey in the end - our first lot of honey and very tasty it is too.  I must phone Jill and tell her I filled the honey pot she gave to me.
