First year hive. Has three deeps. Bottom deep was brood chamber at the start, has a lot of drone comb. They have been using that whole deep for pollen storage. The second is all brood, and the third was half brood and about half capped honey.
Well I went in today and there's NO capped honey!
And the queen has filled all my formerly capped honey cells with eggs, with a decent amount of open nectar on the periphery. The goldenrod hasn't bloomed yet but there is a large orchard a mile away. So I'm not thinking we're in a dearth. Unless there is a dearth and no one told the queen. They are bringing in pollen, it has been a little rainy lately.
So question, if we do get a goldenrod flow and they still don't have enough stores, how late can I feed them? I hope I don't have to.
