After having supers on just in case for quite some time now, it looks like the fall flow is starting. I don’t usually take spring honey off, preferring to leave it for the bees, and I think its been the right decision for the last couple of years. Some beekeepers I’ve talked to took off early honey then had to feed their bees during the summer derth. As was the case last year, I was beginning to wonder if we were going to get any honey this season. Goldenrod was out a little early, and the bees are working both that and Japanese knotweed now, so I have hopes of getting some kind of honey crop. A lot will depend on the weather over the next few weeks. I’ll keep my fingers crossed and keep checking those supers.
