Apologies for by absence

I have been too busy beekeeping to blog!

Well, it's the best excuse that I can come up with (ending the sentence with two prepositions - naughty!) [the best excuse up with which I can come - there, that's better].

A summary of the season: started with three hives, now have eight, but am about to give away one (the last hive on National frames - hence the generosity).

The increase is down to swarm-catching. The downside is that I have no idea what sort of bees I have - their health, termperament, etc.

I will blog again on trumps and disasters of the season.

A tout a l'heure.


  1. I got my first hive this year, had hoped to have 2, but its a bit late in the season now. I bought mine from a chap at the BKA I belong to, so hoping for a swarm next year to fill the other hive.

    You must have a muntain of honey!

  2. Good for you Zoe! Try setting out a bait hive. Just google "bait hive" for instructions. Steve.

  3. Sadly, not a mountain of honey. The season did not start well. But going into the winter with SEVEN hives, so I hope to do better next spring. S


I'm sorry but I now have to moderate comments after spam has been posted as comment. It's a nuisance.
