Beekeepers – from a safe distance
I know it’s a bit far away but the Ealing Transition beekeepers arrived this morning as we were tidying up around the apple trees in the Walmer Gardens orchard. I thought I’d take a look at what they were doing but saw lots of bees swirling around the hive so decided this is as close as I’m going. The bees get a weekly check and I’m told they are doing well. Last year was tough going for them so I hope this year is better and they can produce some honey.
As for the apple trees – they have a decent crop on this year. Last year was dreadful. So, looks like apple juice come September.
Our Abundance blog is the place to keep up to date with all these things – http://westealingabundancew13.wordpress.com/about/ – and don’t forget we have Elderflower Cordial for sale through the w7emporium in Hanwell.
