Thank You Dawn_SD for the “Perfectionist streak” I am still a rookie though.
Last year, they filled the frames 90% never the end and they never capped any of it. I saw that they were start to consum it so did harvest on 7/17 last year and then again late fall to remove the flow frames for winter and again they never cap any of it.
That is why I got a “Refractometer” and as stated in my first post I was seen the frames full and decided to get it out and check to see. Most were above 19% below 19.5% a few were right at 18% where it needs to be.
Just went out an looked thur the window and did see that the cells are starting to be capped. Not closed up at all just starting the cupping of being capped.
I maybe a pipe Dream to harvest in a week, I will not do it to soon. Next week will be really tough for me anyway for I am going to the Texas “pre Buringingman” Flipside next weekend so likely the weekend after Memorial Day.
All input is greatly appreciated. I have not been as active this year on this forum as I fill I should and glad to see there is a good team keeping all safe and sound
