Sorry I have not posted anything for a while I am just so busy clearing two new allotment plots , dismantling two rotten old sheds etc. Its harvest time which means wines, cider, jams,chutneys to make.
The Queen from the mating hive has been introduced to a queenless nuc so hopefully they will be ok for next season.
I also have a bumper crop of honey so I will take some of it and leave some for the bees.
I have seen for the first time a clouded yellow butterfly on the plot.
