Wow...! A lot of honey you got already. Congratulations!

However, I am concerned now. Either I don't have a good honey flow here, or I am bad beekeeper. The weather is not bad here - sunny days with occasional rain.
I have total of 4 hives now:

3 hives survived very well from last year. They were damaged a little bit in spring by raccoon, but managed to survive well. 2 of them had swarm in the begging of June.
1 hive from split.

All 4 hives from my point of view are doing well, strong colonies. They have honey in the brood chambers (I use deep boxes)
I only put 1 super on 2 hives, and they just started working on them. 2 other hives are not ready for supers.
I am wondering if you extract your honey from the brood boxes??? How it is possible your bees already collected so much honey?
Anyone, Any suggestions?
Thank you.

Just a WAG but if I count as producers only the six  five frame nucs I bought in April that endured ice and snow until after the middle of May and then way too much rain for another month.  I will get sixty to eighty pounds average from them and that is drawing all comb.  I guess it hasn't been so bad.  My first year with carniolans and they started backfilling the brood boxes some time ago.  The flow continues which surprises me.  Near forty degrees last night, winter is coming.
