I would leave it on myself. Consider this, you probably have another 3 or 4 weeks until the first major nectar flow for your area. That would probably be the fruit bloom and is a good one for build up. Then there is also the possibility of a killing freeze like we have had for 3 of the last 2 years.
When the bee's start making surplus honey, hopefully from tulip poplar and locust, it will be fresh. Fresh honey has a better appeal to buyers than old honey.
Another factor is if you did any fall treating with teramicyn or anything else, the residue will be in the honey.
On a side note I was in your area last week with a friend.
