Well the last few weeks have been eventful. Three colonies artificially swarmed. One passed on to a new beekeeper, and two new colonies retained.
One of the main problems at this time of year is keeping up with the need for equipment. Of course in an ideal world I would simply turn to my ready made stack of brood boxes, fill them with frames I constructed over the winter and head out.
In practice I have been playing ‘catch-up’ and making frames up late at night.
So repeat after me, “next year I will be more organised ….”
