    Default In SE Pa, adding a 4th super question

    One hive has a third deep almost filled out.
    All of the hives are bringing in nectar but this particular one must have hit the motherlode.
    Could there be enough nectar yet through Fall to fill another Deep?
    I prefer to have supers all the same size on each hive but we have some Medium and Shallow supers that could be placed on instead.
    Disadvantage to that is I can't pyramid frames up into those size supers.
    Tried searching for this but didn't find an answer.
    thanks

    Ended up placing another Deep on top.
    There was a frame with parts of it having extra wide honey comb.
    i trimmed it down and we got our first pint of raw honey.
    Good stuff!
    Strained it through some cheesecloth and shared some samples with our immediate neighbors.
    We're glad they like our bees and more honey will be going their way.
