    Default Honey!

    It has been a long time coming. I am going into my 4th year, and finally got to get some honey. Last fall, I pulled about 40 pounds and put into the freezer for emergency feed for my bees. I successfully over wintered that hive. I added 2 more this year, as well a caught a swarm. 2 weeks ago, I had a lot of frames of uncapped nectar. I called my mentor, and he came and inspected Friday evening. I pulled 8 frames, to keep the hives from getting honey bound. I was pleasantly surprised.

    39+ pounds.

    That's awesome! Congrats!!

    I am in a similar boat. I'm in my third year. I didn't get anything my first year. Last year I pulled just a few of frames to get some honey for myself. We had a good flow here in NJ this Spring, and last week I extracted over 80 pounds! I executed my first successful split this Spring too.
