How much honey do you usually get from your hives? Are you North, South or Mid U.S.? How many hives do you have? I've been bee keeping for about 5 years, the best I've done was 30# from one shallow super. It was completely filled and capped. I don't seem to do very good, have 3 hives and lucky to get 5 pounds from each one per season. There are plenty of fields around and plenty of flowering trees and plants. I don't get it.
