One of my hives swarmed last Saturday, and I was able to catch it. This new hive is doing extremely well in its first 5 days of life - lots of new eggs, and lots of new comb (with honey) being drawn out. Right now I just have them in one deep, but if the current rate continues, I'll be adding a second deep this weekend, and I may well have that deep drawn out by the end of next week.
My question: as a newbie, my understanding was that, in my northern climate, only a May/June swarm would be liable to produce any honey for me; any swarm after that would basically mean it was my job to just get the colony ready for winter and call it good.
But this hive just seems.... vigorous. Can I still reasonably hope to get a honey crop from it this year? If so, what do I need to do to manage it for that? Do I still just stick a super on top when the upper deep gets 80% drawn out? I can't seem to find any info on what to do in this situation.
