There are supers on each hive alllllmooooosttt ready.  Maybe a third of the honey is already capped.  I will check again in ten days or so, but the harvest cant be far off now.

If you ger the right conditions and you have a good population, they might suyrprise you and fill up fast.  I got very pleasantly surprised when I found I had not taken enough supers out to give my hives more room!  Go Team go!!  I am waiting for my first honey crop since 1984.  That one was about 38,000 pounds but I don't think we will do that with six five frame nucs that I split up to a dozen colonies.

Checking on the bees revealed they have been ve ry busy.  I took twice as many supers as I was expecting and there is lots of honey left in the hives.  The boxes will go back on as the hives are crowded and a small flow is expected in the fall which is honey for the bees.
