Thanks to a true piece of good fortune, good people and good timing we made a new friend and got a happy swarm of bees into our hive.

We had been waiting for a while on somebody’s list somewhere and then our mate Troy put us into his mate Cam who put us on to his mate Tony who it turns out knows Jess anyway.

Happy bees. Happy Dom. We will be trying to keep the use of smoke to a minimum but we are absolute beginners.

Dominique bought a giant suit that will fit me and it looks hilarious on her.

Bring on the honey. We shall be updating and learning all at the same time.
