I have been keeping bees for about 10 years on the same area, and my honey begins to crystallize in about 4-6 months in 5 gallons buckets. This was an unusual year and everything came early. I even harvested early and had the highest production ever since I started. But my 5 gallon buckets are already crystallizing in about only 4 weeks. I am in the same area with I presume the same flora. Any reason for this change?

In California's central coast area there is a late bloom of vinegar weed, also known as woolly blue curl. Honey from this flower can crystallize in as little as 3 days - quite a pain to avoid, unless you have a creamed honey setup.
