2015の初採蜜!First Honey Harvest for 2015

After recovering from a 40.6C (105F) fever I decided it was time to harvest from the Fuku Cafe apiary.

From two hives I was about to harvest around 10kg* (22lbs) with a sugar content of 80.4% and an unusual dark color for spring honey

*10kg is a very good haul for Japanese honey bees. We average a little over 3.5kg (7.7lbs) per hive per year.

Man the weeds in this country grow fast, I need to look into mulching
