Honey Bee Survey

British Beekeepers Association have just announced the results of the 2012/13 Survey

A THIRD of British honey bee colonies didn't survive the long, cold, wet winter. OK the weather has been awful but I think a lot of their problems are caused by greedy, commercial beekeepers robbing their honey and replacing it with syrup and candy. We didn't take any honey from our hive last year, the colony survived and seems quite strong. We won't take any honey this year if the weather continues like this.

Come on - give them a break or WE are going to bee in big trouble...

Summer Fire

Why am I lighting the fire in nearly mid-June?
BECAUSE I'M COLD...
It reminds me of last year, Global Warming huh.

Free Range Organic Meat - Free...

I'd heard that squirrels are hard to skin but Ness had no trouble getting this ones coat off...

Lovely eating, much better than the pigeon and rabbit we had with it.  Sort of chicken texture and rabbit flavour - I'd definitely have it again.
Jed got the tail...
