A blog originally for keeping track of my hobby of being a Beekeeper which has evolved to include Home Brewing and even more recently to follow me and my families approach to "The Good Life". Eventually I hope to include baking recipes and stories of our flock of chickens also reporting on the success and failure at the allotments.

Some large raised beds that my Dad and Brother-In-Law have been working hard at. Can't take much credit myself for this but will help with filling them and obviously eating the produce!

Now that it's white bum can be seen it can be identified as bombus hypnorum.
