How many of you in the UK are still to harvest and where are you?

about 70 and rising
Still have a little honey in one of the supers on the two colonies still up in the hills. They'll be coming home at the weekend.

Normally would harvest three times - early June at the end of the oilseed rape season, late July before a move to the hills, and now. Very little this year - some rape and a very little heather honey.

sadly, no more!
Harvest?

Before you can harvest, you have to have honey! My ladies are busy filling frames with nectar, but I can see v little capped. But then they are a new colony this year, from a 3 frame nuc, so perhaps next year?...
