    Default honey pouring in

    Just finished boxing bees that arrived in Fl for pepper flow. Really really hot, may be hard on me but good for honey. Best flow Ive seen in two yrs from any source in the last 4 days.....good colonies gaining nectar at about 10 lb/day. Hope it stays hot for next three weeks!!!!

    Looks like a good pepper flow so far, but man is it hot. I was setting up bees today to split off I thought I was going to have a heat stroke.

    It was 23 this morning and then got to a nice 61 high with clear crisp skis. Watch out for them "no see um's"
