So, just before I went away on holiday (29th July) I managed to take off and extract the remaining honey from the single hive; Hive 2.
In total I got 23 kgs (51 lbs) of honey from this hive which I think is very good considering it was its first year in production.
I've "jarred" the first batch and the second batch of honey separately; it is quite different in colour. I even made some set honey, although to my regret I used cheap supermarket honey as the "starter" seed honey; not next time.
