Just trying to build up this year but couldnt help myself to 3 frames of Foundationless honey. They had it to spare. I was very happy with the amount I got off 3 frames. Cut 4 pieces of comb, Filled 4 quarts and a Pint. The Poplar and the clover/wildflower have a very different flavor. Both great. G :rolleyes:

I dont have an extractor, so I was going to go with the slow drain method to save the comb. After 2 days with lots of pockets still remaining full, I just went crush and strain. Wife wanted a little wax anyway. Oh, I just used a kitchen fork actually. Thanks Dr L. Good Luck. G

Oh I am so envious :) I believe My bees have made enough to harvest a little bit this year too, but I wont be able to do anything till the middle of August.

I could probably get more, it came from a giant swarm. The rest of my hives are booming but they are all from splits, except another smaller swarm. Im gonna leave all the goldenrod for them. Good Luck HH. G
