Wow. So that came at me fast. Ten days ago they only had honey on the middle six frames and were just starting on the insides of the seventh and eighth. I had been given to understand that I was unlikely to see a harvest my inaugural year, do to the bees getting a late start, (mid April) and that they would need their first year's honey to overwinter.

My initial impulse was to get on the line to the local association about renting an extractor, but now I'm wondering if I shouldn't play it safer and just stack another super on top.

...Then REALLY make out like a bandit next year.
