Fall Flow ~ Goldenrod
We are lucky to have such a nice fall flow. Not only does it give us a rich honey but provides a great winter food for the bees. If the hives are good condition they can bring in not only stores for their hive but extras for those smaller hives. Sharing resources is easier and healthier (assuming they are healthy) for your hive.
A hive full of goldenrod honey will produce like crazy in the spring build up. Sugar can not do what honey can in the hive.
