    Harvesting honey tomorrow. I have 2 medium supers full. I have 1 frame in each super with a tiny amount of brood on one side. My plan is to put those back on the hive with a queen excluder then harvest the frames after the brood has hatched. Looks like a good harvest this year. :fl :drool

    We got about 35lbs. Not as much as I was hoping for, but that's OK. It looks good. Going to enter some in the State Fair.

    I sold most of it within 30 minutes of taking it into work.
