Hey Folks! First year beek question. I've got a first year Hive that has done pretty good this year. I'm running all deeps and I've got 2 full deeps of brood and stores plus a 3rd deep that has about 4 full frames of honey. I know first year hives don't usually yield any honey, but I've got to admit, I've got my eye on that 3rd super. I don't want to be greedy and take too much, but I've heard that most hives will winter well with 2 full deeps. I also don't mind doing some feeding for winter. My real question is, when do you normally harvest your honey? I am wondering if I should harvest soon and then just give them a gallon feeder to tide them over, or should I wait until later in the year, like september/october?? Don't want to take it too soon, but I also don't want a dearth to hit and have them eat all that honey when they could be eating sugar syrup. What do you think? Thanks for any input!
