    Looking for some Tupelo Honey

    Hi all,

    Does anyone know of a reputable source for Tupelo honey. I've heard there's a lot of mislabeling and bait/switch going on to take advantage of the demand.

    What do you think about me installing a unit underneath my hives that would record the weight of my hives at one hour intervals throughout the year? The log of observations would be extracted...
  13. Re: Moving two of three hives to a new location...

    PS I'm not moving the two stronger hives solely for the benefit of the weaker one. I need to move them for other reasons...thought that a side benefit may be to strengthen the weaker hive.
