Harvest

Despite the comedy beekeeping we’ve managed fill our storecupboard with honey. The comparison with last year is interesting.  In 2010 we took off our first honey (22 lb) on 6th June. Our second crop was taken off on 24th July (79 lb) making a total of  101 lb. This year we took off 145 lb on 21st May.  The best hive produced 75 lb and the one that swarmed a mere 20lb.  There’s still plenty of time for a second crop.
