Another day, another ton.   Manuka too. ☺️   Well actually, gross laden weight a tad over a ton, but once extracted probably around 560 kg's of honey, so, 1/2 a ton.    

Angus and Lowline beef    These are our Pedigree Lowline bulls just finished with the cows and heifers .  

Yeh I did too .  My dairy herd has sold ????? Right , that’s more than enough of that type of talk here

"Crate Day" down south ...... whitebait patties, paua, venison steaks on the BBQ  washed down with copious quantities of Speights followed by loud music and drunken debauchary.

Ok also long as there is no jiggling going on. 

Although I did observe some girls jumping in a large puddle, caused by a blocked drain in Lorne Street, Hamilton this avo.

Avoiding hijacking the thread where Alastair pointed it out but do we have new US members (2?) to welcome in or is it some sort of bot?

The forecast says so, but always a punt 7 days out.

Looking back a year at last years photos. I had three supers on hives 12 months ago. Most hives have one empty super on them this year. Quite a contrast.

 

To be fair though, last year was the first I had got buttercup honey and our flow usually starts close to Christmas. Last year it was all over by then
