Honey harvest? or honey "on hand" right where you need it in the apiary in late spring/early summer?

Or instead of harvesting that honey, the “honey bank” is right there in the beeyard, on hand to make up splits or nucs. No need to carry the honey frames in and out of the yard because they are where the beekeeper needs them. Sometimes internet videos call this having resource hives in your apiary, but all small scale hives are potential resource hives, and not just for honey frames. One colony has extra frames of pollen, another has capped brood, . . oh, this one has swarm cells, time to make a split? No problem for the small scaler who knows his/her hives; everything needed to make up a robust split and provide it with a swarm cell or 2 is right at hand in the apiary.
