Sharing some of our joys, highlights and worries of beekeeping ...
October 2011 -
Despite the wintery temperatures, interrupted by bursts of a few warm days, our flora is producing pollen and nectar and the bees are out to get it when it's not too cold. The cool weather does not stop the bees! However, cool temperatures and rain are preventing beekeepers to open the hives for maintenance and beekeeper activities are concentrated on the few warm days we have had in October.
As we have had sufficient rain over the last two years or so our environmental conditions have much improved, plants have recovered from years of drought and are growing and flowering like they haven't for years -
