The fields of yellow are not quite so bright and now have a green tinge, at least local to me. The bees have brought some crop in and I may need to do some extracting in the next week or two. This seems to be about 3 weeks earlier than last year. I hope it doesn’t go cold later this month as the rape will solidify in the comb if I am not quick.
