Nearly Finished Super

One of the seven completely capped frames.

I inspected the super I am planning on harvesting this year.  This will be the first honey harvest I will be getting from the hives.  I would probably have gotten more honey this year had the swarms not happened and all the supers were already drawn.  With all fresh frames, the bees had to use a lot of the nectar they collected to draw the foundation out instead of turning it into honey.  There were seven completely capped frames of honey, two frames that are still being filled with honey and only a small number of the cells were capped, and one frame that still hasn’t been fully drawn out.
