    hello,
    I have a hive with 2 deep brood chambers and above that a queen excluder,than a medium super that was 3/4 full and a deep above that that maybe have 15 pounds of honey as of 2 weeks ago. the goldenrod flow has begun here in ohio and looks good . but i hear and read goldenrod honey isn't very good , is that true , can i let the bees finish filling the two supers and take it off ? The oder coming from the hive smells so good. What do you people think of goldenrod honey is it worth the keeping. I think with the two deep brood chambers they should have enough to get them through the winter here in Ohio. Thank you
    Walt

    Golden rod makes good honey. My flow is under way as well. I'd keep it!

    I like goldenrod honey as well. It will crystalize faster than most

    Yes it is darker, but here in NE PA people really like it. With the drought we had, I am hoping for a few supers myself. We just had a little rain, maybe...
