honey on



Well a quick look at bee yards and supering of hives today.

ALL hives put on at least 90lbs of honey this year. Some will do more, not bad for such late starts. Good thing OR. was about 2 weeks behind in everything this year cause of weather. It sure paid off for me :cheers: Those who don't know, 90 lbs per hive is good for OR which will average about 60lbs. My only honey crop is the wild blackberries.

Passing through ND and MT last week looks like they will also have a 120+lbs crop average. The sweet clover is EVERYWHERE
