In a current thread on Michigan nectar flows a poster (danno) mentions that he removes his suppers when the goldenrod blooms. I am a first year keeper and have four very productive hives. I have already harvested 4.5 gallons of very good honey. Two hives are at winter weight now, the other two are ones I took the honey from. So my question, is the fall honey not as good as the early honey? I am expecting a significant fall production and intend to harvest all the honey that exceeds my hive weights of 135 pounds. As I said two hives are more or less there now, so should I take honey from them and replace it with the fall flow because the fall honey is not as good or plan to just take the new fall crop? I have never had bad honey and am curious why danno wants to avoid the goldenrod flow, some posters seem to be looking forward to it. My area has a lot of goldenrod in the fall. Secondarily I believe it prudent to make certain all four hives have sufficient winter weight before taking any more stores so will probably wait in any case.
