I am curious, as a year 1 bee keeper, was this a good year for honey?

My bees, although thriving early on in the summer, swarmed and were slow to re queen. They have 2 supers with full but mostly uncapped honey comb. I suspect they are munching through the supplies themselves!

I know mid summer was cool and wet. Now most folk seem to have taken their honey.

So, how did you do?!

Hi

I'm also a year 1 beek, I got 2 nucs and a collected swarm with no queen. 1 nuc did really well and I got 50lb of honey from it, but nothing from the others, they have been slower to expand for one reason and another.

I was well chuffed as I didn;t expect to get anything from them this year, so really looking forward to getting them through the winter and seeing what I get next year.

Cheers

mark.
