On my labels I put 1.44# for a pint and 2.88# for a quart. You can be less but not over the actual weight.
Back to the thread now.
10 Farmer, I have seen some drones also. The bees are bring in a little yellow pollen. I have some Laruel Cherry trees across the road from my house. They are covered in blooms, but haven't opened yet. Should in a few days. The white clover is blooming good, haven't seen the girls on it though. Good luck to yall.
