Well, this is it, my very first blog post.
I decided a while back that I wanted to keep my own bees and I now have the opportunity to do just that. I haven’t got them yet – it’s winter and they’re busy keeping warm in a small nucleus hive owned by the local beekeeper’s club. Over the next couple of months I’ll learn more about how to keep them healthy and happy so I don’t mess up as soon as I get them. Then it’s years of learning and producing lots of bees, honey , wax candles and polish .
Over the next few blogs I’ll describe how I got to this point and what I’ve learnt already and who I’ve been learning from. I’ll also start posting on Twitter and Instagram to keep as full a record as I can.
