A few days ago I harvested some spring honey from my strongest hive. Pic shows a frame halfway through ‘uncapping’ necessary before putting it in a centrifuge. Spring honey tastes great but crystallises quickly, so it’s best to clear it off so it doesn’t mix in with the summer honey, which stays runny.
Since I have more hives than last year, I need to make up a few more hive boxes and frames to ‘super’ (put on top). With the amount of rain we’ve had, if it warms up a bit the clover and blackberry yield around us in the next month could be very heavy.
