Bee keeping course with Small farms network and Bruce White

Day 1 of a bee keeping course in Berry was wonderful.

Howard bravely held a frame teaming with bees! He didn't get stung but I did. Youch. It hurt but I've had worse I guess.

Fabulous frame covered in bee brood - or baby bees safely cocooned in their cells. I marked some drone bees, the ones that mate with virgin Queens, with a red whiteboard marker. Learning about bees is quite scandalous in mixed company! 

Honeycomb! Yum. Worker bees making honey. How gorgeous.

Just a taster - more tomorrow.
