Well, well, well. Finally we went and did a beekeeping course. Here are pictures taken during our practical.

Get your smokers going before you start on your hive(s).
Open the lid carefully and give them a little dose.
Take out frames as required. (Nice gloves!)
Inspect ....... and look knowledgeable.
Have a bee. It's only a drone.
There's more where that came from. (No, they weren't all drones.)A marvellous time was had by all. :)

Awesome!!! Are you going to keep bees up on your farm??!

Yup. Next time we see you, we should be able to let you taste our own honey. Unless you come in the next few weeks, of course. :)
