I live in Southern/Mid Michigan (Eaton Rapids, MI). I know there is a good nectar flow going right now, especially the last couple weeks. Sumac, Clover, Thistle, Mint, Perenials, and I live next to a soybean farm (not sure how much nectar comes from soybean). But I would like to take only a few frames of honey - just enough for some personal stock and to taste. I have the hives on my property that has about a 1/2 acre of Goldenrod - so I am hoping they will be able to build some winter stores off of that. Looking into next year though - how do I get enough drawn foundation to make sure I get a good honey harvest. Like I stated - I started this year - and only have the two deeps drawn. I removed the excluder - so I am hoping they will start drawing out the super, and even better if I can get them to draw out two supers. Also interested in starting a NUC from one of my hives they are both going pretty strong - will I have time to get another hive going before winter? Or am I asking for too much? I was going to ask this question later but I will throw it out now. Should I requeen this fall? My two hives were both started from packages this past spring.
