There has been some great discussion in the introduction thread
…but if you’ve been here a while and not sure where to post, I thought a general and open ended thread about what everyone is up to would be an excellent ice breaker and opportunity to start discussions on a wide range of beekeeping topics.
If you don’t think you need a new topic for your photos, thoughts or ideas, post them up here so others can see what you’re up to!

One of my larger hives had a bit of a tilt after the recent storm… so sured it up with some spare bricks and some builders wedges until I can get in to take some weight off it
Lastly I thought i’d try my luck with some more new frames before the season was out… let’s see how they go
