Had a bee club member help me out yesterday with my first honey crop. I was not anticipating a harvest the first year but will happily take it!
I am running 2- 8 frame deeps and had a deep super on each. These two hive started as a package in April and I made splits in late May off both.
I had 8 frames of capped honey equaled about 4-5 gallons of pure, dark, incredibly sweet goodness. I cant wait to see what they do in the spring! What a sweet reward for all the work and $$ invested in these girls.
Lets see if I can get some pics to post...
