the bees have not made much honey in the last two weeks. checked a few yards that were plugged 2 weeks ago foundation was put on and they have not touched it. i think the weather has been a major factor. to much rain this late in the summer. hot dry weather needed here in southern MN. honey prices seem to be holding high according to the bee journal. going to start pulling honey this weekend. looks like a 100 pound average. lost 25 percent after splitting in east texas. seems like you have to work twice as hard just to break even these days.
