Christmas Cherries

It is a Tasmanian tradition to have fresh cherries on the table for Christmas. They don’t get any fresher than staight off the tree.

Now that I have finished boasting, Merry Christmas to all.

      Hi Graeme, that sounds fantastic, I seem to go through large quantities of honey (in my tea) so that could be the solution to my costly consumption. How long did it take for the four frame to fill?

      • I extracted 20kg of honey mid feb’15 from 8 frames .The 4 frames are the first since then. At this stage another 4 frames and 8 wsp frames (3/4 size) should be ready for extraction mid /late feb ’16.

          Thanks for the info Graeme, I imagine there are many readers who would love to keep bees, including myself. Sounds like you have the bug (mind the entirely intentional pun)
