The girls in one of the hives are putting up the honey. I added another super today. I pulled 1 frame from the first super and brought it home for the family to enjoy. It seems part of that frame has some funky honey. It tastes off, almost like the way goldenrod smells. The rest is fine. You think maybe it hadn't cured long enough?

Overwintered but the comb is fresh, since I'm switching over to foundationless. The honey is light in color.

Different strokes for different folks. This last batch I extracted was predominantly blackberry with a little citrus. Not my favorite, my wife raved over it as she was bottling last night. She took a bottle to work with her today and had a "honey tasting" session. She took a bunch of orders for Monday. Told me not to "pollute" it with any thing else.
