North East Beekeepers' Convention
It may be a busy time of the year but we still decided to take a day out to go to the North East Beekeepers' Convention in Newcastle. We had discussions and presentations on beehives, pollination and the history of beekeeping. All good stuff. All we need now are some bees. We have two hives and colonies on order so hopefully sometime soon they will arrive.
Talking of things arriving, our henhouse arrives on Monday. Also on order is a poly tunnel for our raised bed. Not sure when that is due to arrive.
