A definite NEHITD weekend

It's been absolutely mad this weekend, firstly on Friday the polytunnel arrived (see previous blog) so Mal was at home to supervise the construction and provide cups of tea!  Then friday evening saw us in Ruthin for the last instalment of the Bee-keeping course with South Clwyd Beekeepers. This time we were covering honey extraction and sale.

The following day we were back in Ruthin again for the final session - more on honey extraction and a recap on the previous weeks subjects, particularly treatments for varroa.  The weather was so bad (cold and wet) that we decided against opening the hives so had a brief look at the Associations kit for honey extraction.  It's very impressive with a fully lined wipe clean room, stainless steel worksurfaces and extraction equipment.

The following morning it was up early to head off to Gardener's World Live at the NEC, Birmingham.
