Bee Keeping

My new life as a beekeeper came a step closer when I attended the practical session run by LDBKA. Unfortunately the weather was a bit changeable but the bees behaved impecably and my suit got its first outing! The next step is my own hive which should be arriving towards the end of May. This will consist of a new queen and nucleus of bees and the aim will be to build up their numbers so they are strong enough to survive theĀ  winter and hopefully extract some honey this season – that will be very dependant on the weather!
