Honey Havest
« on: May 26, 2010, 09:44:53 PM »
I harvested 15+ gallons of honey from two hives. That was my best ever. We had a good spring flow. Any one else seeing a good flow?

Not that good up here, but I did have a sucky winter trying to keep the hives alive.

I got 3 supers from one hive. Approx. seven gallons. The lightest honey I have ever harvested in NC.

Same here, it was some of the lightest that I have ever seen. Same location as previous years but the honey is so different.

I'm going to keep my supers on until July 4.  Then, we'll celebrate the harvest!

2 1/2 barrels from 35 hives in april (orange blossom flow) and 1 3/4 barrels of the same hives last week (gallberry).

"In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
