Over the years my blog has led to many unexpected opportunities and serendipitous meetings. This has happened yet again since moving to Cornwall – the editor of Cornwall Today came across my blog and now I feature in this month’s issue.
I’m hopefully getting closer to having bees again – Drew and I have been discussing the best place to keep bees in our back garden, which is a little awkwardly shaped and also north facing. He has kindly offered to build me a hive stand. The going rate locally for a nucleus hive seems to be around £200, which is a little eye-watering as I’ve never had to buy bees from a supplier in the past. When I do get them I shall be looking to do a split as soon as they create queen cells – I have no intention of buying bees more than once.
