It’s true. I can’t keep up with my son! The Golden Son Beekeeper does his beekeeping duties with or without a camera man. There’s a lot of inspections and other hive activity that doesn’t get caught on camera because it’s all happening when I, Daddykirbs, am at work.

Oh well, what I do get to record is fun and interesting. Like in this episode, Espen shows us how to open a hive and take out frames of honey. You heard that right… honey! These bees are very productive!

Since we do not have a honey extractor we are using the crush and strain method of honey collection. This is how we did it two seasons ago with my first hive. The honey has a bit more wax in it, but it all floats to the top and can be scraped off.

Give Espen a thumbs up and subscribe. Let’s see if you have a better time keeping up with him!


#growreallife is my hashtag to connect people interested in Growing Real Life. This is a bit of a double meaning. Growing Real means following the patterns of nature. Real Life is developed fully in our gardens and our souls when we pattern ourselves in harmony with nature. Grow with me.
