honey!

Well, I harvested my first batch of honey!
Since my colony swarmed, and I lost half of them, I really wasn't expecting to be able to get any honey at all. We had a longer summer though, and I was able to try to stick a honey box on. To my surprise, I ended up getting a nice big jar of honey from that box. About 5 of the 10 frames were about 30% honey filled. 
This is a 1600 mL jar, so about 1800 mL.
Not too shabby!
