Last week we pulled our supers—small boxes filled with 10 half-size frames designed for easy harvest. As you can see above, not all the honey in the combs was capped, but even so, from 7 capped frames we harvested 19 lb. 4 oz. of late summer honey.
Combined with our first surprise harvest, in her first year Veronica has given us 31 lb 14 oz. How sweet it is!
