question about how fast a nuc should build up
I bought 2 nucs.. one was weak the other was pretty good.. hived them both.. its been.. almost a month maybe it has been?..
the one is almost done filling up the bottom. so i put a second super on a week ago...the other has barely filled out 3-4 frames..(the weak hive had one empty frame one half empty and 3 mixed...there is brood in there.. and they are bringing in pollen. i put a honey super on just to give them more room and to help with circulation.and also if they build up fast all of a sudden and i dont notice..they have somewhere to build...(getting muggy and hot)
at what point should they (strong hive) be filling out the second box we have a great bloom of white clover on our land.. about a acre of it at least if not more not to mention the black locust starting to bloom.. etc..
it would be nice if i could get even one jar of honey this year. sigh..

Wise man looks both ways anyhow.......
