Bees At Work
On Friday, whilst on a visit to the outlaws in Lincoln, I popped into visit the beekeeping supplier EH Thorne Beehives.
In the UK, Thorne is something of a beekeeping establishment having set up in 1915. It is now a fourth generation family firm and supplies all sorts of beekeeping equipment not only to UK beekeepers but those further afield too.
I was sussing out its wooden hives as I think I may invest in one for next season to have alongside the Beehaus. A functional national or the prettier WBC hive? Decisions, decisions.
Anyway, back in the Beehaus, my girls are making honey. Yay! I've heard the honey flow may be drawing to a close so I'm hoping they will have a final spurt of energy so that I can harvest a few jars.
