    Wow, 2 gallons? Sweet![​IMG]

    I've got my sponge, but it's been raining at the rate of about 2" an hour for more than 3 hours - not sure how much more the sponge can soak up.[​IMG]

    Margie, I can't back a trailer either! Well, a little if I have to, but not great at it. Hubby makes it look so easy. I can and do use my mirrors, and I'm good with the direction, I just have to do it slow. Really slow.

    Bunny, I hope you find a bigger sponge, or better yet, I hope it quits raining for you soon. :fl

    Eggsy, honey sounds awesome!

    Sounds good to me, That much honey would have my Grandbabies in sweet overload.
    Do you use the whole cone or spin it out? I grew up with the whole cone from Grandpa's bee's, didn't even know about clear separated honey in a jar until I seen it in a store.

    Eggsy, your honey sounds delicious! I like the darker honeys myself. How often are you able to get honey from your bees, is that a one or two times per year kind of thing?
