>So much for "don't expect any honey in your first year".
There's a reason not to expect it. It's a gift and you may or may not get it.
Sometimes a package really booms and the weather is just right and the flow is awsome and you get a lot of honey. Sometimes the package doesn't take of or the weather sucks or the flow is off and you get nothing and feed them 100 pounds of sugar.
I've gotten 200 pounds from each of my hives one year (I had four that year). It was an awsome flow and perfect timing on the weather. I've never gotten 200 pounds from a hive in one year since. But then I've focused more on how many pounds of honey for the least amount of work.
