In five years now of keeping bees, we’ve learned a lot. And it’s the best kind, at least for me, of learning – the kind that you only gain by doing, by reading and then trying things, observing, adjusting, failing and succeeding. The kind of learning you do with your hands, and with your heart.
After five years, these are the tips I’d give myself embarking on this love affair with bees, tips to stoke and keep the fire burning, year in, year out.
Because make no mistake, it’s a love-thing.
