I harvested 2 medium supers on July 4th. I had another that I put some incomplete frames in. Some had full capped honey on one side. A few had a little bit of brood and some were not completely drawn out. I put that super together with a queen excluder then left it for 8 weeks ( I ment to check it sooner) I finally got around to checking it today and it was completely drawn out and full !!!

Yay, Congrats! That's how my harvest was too. I extracted mid July, and put the super back on for the bees to clean up........and then promptly forgot about it. Came back to a full, capped super. :celebrate

This year was so awesome for honey! Best year yet in the 5 years I've had bees.

I agree. My best year too. I have 2 new hives. I was going to give them the honey, but when I checked them, they were full too!!! Hope everyone's makes it through the winter.

Fingers crossed for this year too!

With the record setting rainfall we had this year, it should be a fantastic honey year! CA officially hit the wettest year on record. (of 100 or so years of tracking)
