Default Mead newb doesn't measure

Longtime brewer, first time meader maid. I made two 1 gallon batches tonight. I had a 7 lbs bottle of honey that I tried to split between the batches. One has oranges, the other just straight honey. My gravity is all over. The mead is 1.104. The melomel is 1.150. I just eyeballs the honey, I trying to go halvsies. Could the orange add that much to the gravity, or is it just my elastic ruler?
