More Honey

Tedd from Lake Elmo extracted his honey two weeks ago. He put his supers back on for the bees to clean up. The bees wound up refilling them with Goldenrod honey.
The Goldenrod flow seems to be spotty around the area. Some beekeepers getting a super of it, other beekeepers not much. The moisture content of the Goldenrod honey seems a little on the high side. I did check some Goldenrod honey today, the super was fully capped but the moisture content was still 19%. US grade A is 18.6% or less.
