IBAclg Autumn 2021 Newsletter
Welcome to the IBA clg Autumn 2021 newsletter.
As the days shorten and the evenings draw in, it’s a good time to reflect on the summer and the beekeeping year.
How well did we manage our bees, what have we learned, and what can we improve upon?
In general, the weather was kind this year and the bees had ample foraging, resulting in a honey surplus for the beekeeper.
It’s time to make the hives secure for the winter, having ensured our bees are healthy and well provisioned for the long months ahead.
Thanks to everyone who contributed articles and photos for this digital issue.
