Sorry if this is a dumb question, but I'm new to this hobby. I started with two packages in early April. The bees are doing great. Filled two deeps fairly quickly with brood. I added a medium super, which they have filled (and capped) with honey. They are now working on another medium super.
Here is the question (or questions):
Should I expect to be able to harvest any honey this year? Can I take the honey now and let them keep whatever they store from now until winter?
How much honey will they need for the winter?
I wasn't expecting any honey this year, but they seem to be doing real well and if they don't need it all, I might as well enjoy it.
