Honey, honey, honey, ho-ney.......HONEY

We all know that song from the Aprentance® and I must say that if honey were money I'd have alot of it. Right now I have two full supers, on for the bees and one for me. They're each about sixty pounds so that's 120 pounds right there. If you include the honey in the brood chamber that brings the total amount of honey on the hive to about 140 pounds. That super I put on Wednesday is doing quite well as well. In less than a week it is already half way drawn, now the bees just have to fill it. I'm thinking that once that super is full, or near full I'll give it to that split colony I made to get them through the winter. I think the honey in the super I'm going to take is mostly palmetto while, the honey in the super I'm leaving for the bees is mostly Brazilian Pepper. The bees weren't exactly plesant today so I think I still had some alarm pharamone on me from the stings yesterday despite showering. Oh well, they should be better next week. I didn't take any photos since I was in and out in under 10 minutes. It looks like there's going to be a good honey harvest this year despite getting started so late.

No...there's not enough for me to just randomly give away. In the 60 pound super after you minus the 14 pounds of wood and 1 pound of wax you're left with 45 pounds of honey. That equates to about 3.5 gallons. Most of it will be given away as christmas gifts and such for relatives and friends, some will become peace offerings for the neighbors and whatever's left over will be my "private stash".
