I've just enrolled with our local beekeepers association. I've missed this years training course but I'm going to go on the visits and pick up the theory from January, with a view to getting bees this time next year.

Because of our limited land area, bees seem like a good way of producing more food and increasing the fertility of the land - and they don't eat any grass!

First visit is on 24th May, so I'm looking forward to that.

I'd love bees too Rosemary, but terrified of being stung - I suffered an allergic reaction as a child. So have had to give them a miss, but it'll be good to hear how you get on

Hi ~ I've just completed my bee keeping course with the Bee Keepers Association and my bee hive is now assembled. Pleased with the white suit that arrived yesterday and awaiting my bees.
