I will be having hand surgery 7/6, so I will need to have all my honey harvested ahead of time.
As of today, I have 25 full (90%+ capped) supers. I added supers on Sat. with undrawn foundation (the last of the supers) and they are hard at work on them. I had thought about ordering more supers and just letting them draw foundation (if nothing else)... more for next year. What do you all think???

I think in your situation I would. Especially considering the surgery, you may not be able to do much with the bees for a bit. It won't hurt to have the extra frames on there. But what they might do, is finish off frames in the center of all the supers with fresh foundation, and leave the outer frames for last. But that's not really a problem or anything.
