Spring Honey

That time of year to spin the spring honey off which is not the easiest job with a broken hand and using a manual spinner. I took just over 35lb of honey leaving the bees plenty although the June gap is now over.

The June gap is a time bees find little to forage on and can starve , this is the time when the spring plants have finished but the summer plants haven’t got going yet.

  1. I do try and keep busy , this year is not going to be as productive as most , due to the fact we are looking after a relative who is very very ill , which understandably has put us way behind in the allotment and garden but it cant be helped
