So I have four of nine hives that are powerhouses. THis is my first year and I started form nucs and temps around here have been, generally, below seasonal with lots of rain, so even though we are outside of our main flow, the wildflowers are simply exploding (plus I have hundreds of acres of clover and alf-alfa fields that are rotating into and out of bloom as we harvest hay.
So...my question is...
I robbed from my strongest hive about a month ago. There were four frames of the clearest capped honey I have ever seen and figured it was the tail end of our Black Locust (and maybe Honey Suckle).
I have a simply two frame extractor on order because I am building up drawn frames and did not want to do a crush and strain.
Its been over a month since I ordered it. I was not told it was back ordered an called and griped and was told it was magically showing up next week. How long will the honey last in the frame?
