The New Year's Bee Keeping is about to start!

Both hives are doing really well, Margaret has done a great job feeding them fondant over the last few months. We just had a quick look last weekend as the weather is not the best at the moment (the interior of the hive has to be kept at a nice constant temperature....) We are just four weeks away from our first big honey flow, so there's lots to plan like artificial swarming, first honey harvest and hopefully collecting swarms. I'm on a weekly night out doing a bee course at the moment, I'll let you know how things go...
