    Ok, I've had my fun. I'll no longer participate in this thread. I can see I'm trying our moderator's patience so I'll do the right thing and bow out.

    Re: When do you add fondant/mountain camp sugar?

    I wait until flight days are all but over. If you add it too early bees will treat it like trash and haul it out on good flight days. I like to wait until predicted highs are in the 40s or so. ...

    Re: extremely aggressive today?

    You're welcome, that's the Pfund grading scale, it's the standard for honey.
