It has to be said – last summer was not to the liking of our honey bees. As soon as we had a warm snap the bees were off looking for a new home. We moved the apiary at Landimore to the top of the field rather late in the season and the bees voted with their feet and refused to put any honey in the supers and kept it for themselves. But this is not enough and we have been feeding them with Ambrosia – still available @ £15 from the co-op. And so we have the sorry tale of the empty honey jars now languishing in the garage; waiting for a fantastic honey season in 2016!
