Started hive from package in Spring 2007. They drew out a deep.
This year I placed a shallow super on top. They drew it out and filled it up with honey very quickly, all but a couple of frame. Fast forward a few weeks, and I am going to harvest some honey with my father (so he can show me how).
It's all brood except for two frames!!!!!
I guess it is ok, because now my hive is bigger and stronger. I have a medium super on top of the shallow, and no queen excluder. They have started drawing out the medium, but not much progress.
Oh well, live and learn.
