I am a late comer to bee keeping, just building my first hive last December. (Lang. 10 fr), which I thought I had installed a 5 frame Nuc from an old beekeeper in Towoomba. Tuurned out he only put 4 in, and kept an empty one so I wouldn’t notice I only had 9. :-/
So now I am trying to raise it to a point where I can split it while we look for acreage - preferably near state forests. The I will be in a position to grow my apiary as my heart desires ( I’m limited to 2 hives in town).
I love watching them come & go and really love the challenges they bring.
