    Default Fall flow in Connecticut?!

    As a newbie I'm still trying to figure out the timing of these things!! The golden rod seems to be in full bloom & the girls are busy and I'm not sure if I should leave the supers on and hope they finish filling them up? Or should I take them off now??
    I still have 3 supers on, 2 are mostly filled and capped, the 3rd is 70% drawn and has a fair amount of thick dark honey filling the cells.
    Since this is my first year and they started as a 5 frame nuc, I'm pretty happy with the results. I do no want to wait too long to take them off though.
    Any suggestions??
    Thanks

    What do you have for a brood nest, and are those boxes light?

    If you need to feed, can you get all the feeding done in 3 or 4 weeks.
