Bad beekeeping, spring 2023

Another year another spring and I wonders, yes I does, if my bees have made it through the winter. The answer appears to be yes, at least one of two hives has, we quietly forget the other one which had died out last autumn. And so on a sunny Sunday afternoon just after Champs Head I went out to Coton; from a distance all is well:


From closer up things are not bad, there is honey in all five supers


but perhaps the pattern is not all that could be desired.


I predict pain and effort when I come back in a week or two to take some honey off.


We'll see.
