I live in the Blue Mountains NW of Sydney. I started bee keeping October17 with my first Flow Hive, a class with Doug Purdie and the arrival of my nuc mid November.
I have learned a great deal from books, YouTube, forums and my local club. Most of all I have learned from my bees. I am obsessed and thankfully my wife is ok with the affair. In spite of the some negative opinions some of the old school have for Flow, I find the whole experience of beekeeping deeply fulfilling. I probably would not started beekeeping without the Flow movement.
I harvested my first 6kg two weeks ago. It was magical. I now have my second Flow Hive ready for Spring splits, but suspect I'll prepare a few more over winter.
My thanks to Cedar and Stuart for a brilliant product and community. My thanks to the multitude of seasoned and newbie YouTube beek producers, Vino Farm and Frederick Dunn in particular. My thanks to the members of this forum, the answers to my questions are usually here somewhere.
