Heard on the radio today that because of July being a total washout, many beekeepers have reduced honey crops or nothing at all. And again they expect the prices to rise.

I was really quite shocked to see just how much honey in my supers has been used by the bees, i have lost over a third easily, and a lot of it was granulated so those frames are going back on.

Just 4 extracted today, and going for another 4 tomorrow, but thats my lot for this year.
Which actually is more than enough and should get some money back in the bee fund.
