Not sure how fast you go through honey so should it start to crystalize simply heat some water to where it has a good steam coming off it (not boiling) and set the honey in it. The honey will go back to it's liquid state keeping it's consistancy.

Enjoy it!!
How much do you end with per harvest?

I have two friends who have a few hives each, one usually has 2-4 a year and the other 6-10.

Wow, that's amazing. And also so much work. I've helped my friend hand spin out the honey from the comb before. I'm sure you guys have a much more effective way to do it but it's still a lot of work.

Yes, it is alot of work! David manages the hives. He actually cut them back, he use to have over 100. I help with the extracting and bottling. We used a manual honey extractor when we first started but about the 3rd year in David invested in an 8 frame electric extracor which made things much easier and faster. I told him it was the best money ever spent. :)

Glad it arrived. It was a battle to get that record. It arrived at my house on Monday of this week. I ordered at the end of November. It's such a great album.

Thanks Santa for these I love it, I can’t wait to give them a spin. Can’t say I’ve heard of The Flower of Evil but I love checking out new stuff. :)

I am a bit on the fence for this year with prices of everything being were there are...
I'll wait to hear other opinions before making a decision.
