I started beekeeping in Pennsylvania and would pull honey two weeks after the Tulip Populars stopped blooming. If there wasn't any honey on the hives at that time I would check in mid July or the first week of August to get the summer flow. I once pulled a batch of honey real early in the spring and got some Sasafras honey. Boy did it taste different
I just pulled five shallows and a half of a deep from 4 of my hives here in Port Orange Fl. I ended up with 15 gallons and left about the same on the last two hives. it all depends on the area and the honey flow.
