We took a late harvest this year. With eight hives up and a very late summer, we have left quite a bit of honey on the hives.
It has been a lovely “Indian summer’ here in the UK – but the Autumn leaves are now turning and the cold is setting in.
We had success creating three new hives from three Buckfast queens sent in the post from Scotland. It will be interesting to see if we can get all the hives through the winter.
Interested to know if anyone has any ideas on creative ways to use the propolis that ends up being dregs of honey and wax extraction.
Here’s to a mild winter!
