Honey – the numbers

I’ve had to check this twice because I can’t quite believe it.  Over the last few days we’ve taken off 194 lbs of honey from just two hives. What makes this extraordinary is that in May we extracted 125 lbs from the same two colonies. Giving a grand total of 319 lbs of honey at an average of 159.5 lbs per hive.  The hive which swarmed earlier in the year and has given us so much trouble yielded a mere 20 lbs.  Add this up and we get a grand total for our 2011 honey crop of 339 lbs.
