Well spring is finally over. I went into the hives today and the bees have put up some honey but not nearly enough for me to think about harvesting any. All three hives look good at this point and I am hopeful to carry them through the winter.

I did move a relatively empty box from hive #2 to hive #3. Hive 3 has recovered nicely from my requeening experiment and needed some extra space to put up stores for the winter.

I will just let them hang out for a couple of weeks before thinking about fall managment.
