Re: Finally ordered an extractor!
I think Mrobisr was wondering about the fact that you harvested only 10 frames of honey out of three hives. I don't think he/she was questioning why you went with the size of extractor that you did. As for the frames/hive ratio....I, too, had three hives this harvest season but I only harvested three supers from one of them...the other two colonies were rebuilding after too much swarming in the spring and didn't produce a spring surplus.
Congrats on the extractor purchase! Enjoy!
Warning: Rookie beek...take my postings with that grain of salt you keep in your pocket.
