I have just spent the weekend getting off the oilseed rape honey before it sets solid in the comb. As I was extracting it had already started to granulate making it really hard to extract. Added to this I feel the bees are always tetchy when foraging the rape. Its not my favourite crop due to it HAVING to be extracted. Hopefully all done but I am sure a few SOLID frames will appear in the coming weeks!
