Very light colored honey.  Looks great!  Mine was much darker, but had a great taste.  Had a lot of clover I think.

Very nice! I am curious how many frames this harvest represents.  Mediums?

Altogether I had five gallons of honey and that was from 2 10 frame shallows and new plastic foundation 1 week ago from last saturday the pics represents about 1.5 gallons and there are still supers to be pulled I just could'nt wait any longer when I seen all that capped gold. The awsome thing is the hives these supers came off were new packages this year. The sweet clover bloom this year has been awsome.

We have one hive that we started from a package that will likely give us three mediums of honey.  I am putting the third on this weekend.  We are coming into hot weather, however, and I am a bit suspect of the nectar flow's ability to support another super.  We will see.  Thanks for the information.
