Hi Colin,

I thought you were excited and that’s why you wrote Toodyay, aka too-d-yay!

:slight_smile: Nice harvesting system, was this your first harvest with the Flow Hive system?:honeybee:

HI Faroe,
Yes this was my first full harvest but I have robbed a few frames from time to time.
I just need put a second brood box on and get enough bees to populate the green hive which is empty now.
Toodyay is a town about 2 hours from Perth.It is an Aboriginal word and means Place of Plenty.
We pronounce it 2J
Cheers, Colin

Hi Colin, putting how to pronounce the town’s name really helps :slight_smile:
