Don't harvest from a frame while there is brood in the frame. Find the queen and get her moved down. Then put on a queen excluder. In 21 days the brood in the top will emerge. The super can be used again as a super and the honey is fit for human consumption. It's all in your head. If you can't get your brain over it, and some people can't, then mark the frames that have brood and use them for any supers you leave on over winter.

(If you're squeamish about eating something that was in a brood cell, just wait until you decide to start queen grafting :eek:)
