I dashed out between showers today and whipped off a dozen frames of sealed honey -  just two or three from each of the strongest hives.  It was more to give them a bit of extra storage space.  Very timely too, though, as I sold out the last of the 2016 crop yesterday!

Thats an early crop Sean. Do you have Oil seed rape around you?  In the UK we got many hundreds of lbs from the Rape. Not the best but early and loads of it.

No, no oilseed rape around here. I'm guessing it's a mixture of hawthorn, blackthorn, apple and willow plus some early white clover which I saw the bees working on.
