Keeping bees

Since I moved to the highlands I’ve wanted to keep bees, well today after much procrastination, today the journey has begun.

With some guidance from John from eezybeez I’ve found a spot on my property where I can put a hive.

 

There is still lots of work to do to get the trash heap of a yard ready but I feel motivated and keen. I’ll need to:

  • create a garden bed and border (added benefit of less grass to mow)
  • purchase and make up a hive (I’m most probably going to get a flow hive)
  • thin out some of the trees to get more sun
  • find some bees
  • look after bees (and get stung)
  • collect honey!

I’ll post my adventure here as it comes along.
