11 pounds off the Benedictium

I filled 22 half-pound queen-line jars with a very dark red honey. Joe tells me that the red color is an indicator of mono-floral Japanese knot-weed. These are all from the Benedictium.

There is a bit of honey in the super of the Josephium, but I think I'll leave it on a bit longer.

We still have strong golden rod presence, but apparently our bendictianae are picky foragers.

We have some small white flowers in bloom in our yard, and there are many honeybees working them. It's a warm dry day today, and we may get more honey yet.
