Apiary Clean Up

img_0710Many thanks to all those who joined the end of season apiary clear up event. In beautiful, warm sunshine, we scraped, scorched, scoured, swept and sorted! All the equipment is now ready for next year and the sheds are extremely tidy. The bee suits have been removed for washing and winter storage. Even the surrounding vegetation has had a serious pruning. There was time for a quick coffee break … everyone worked hard to get the job done by 1pm … brilliant!

Time for a break.

Time for a break.

 

While we were busy the bees were equally active … still enjoying the balsam and making the most of the glorious weather.
