    Move to Dordogne

    Many thanks MJBee. We will be renting in Busserolles for about six months from April whilst we make up our minds whether to buy in France or not, we know the area pretty well. Have already washed the suit in readiness and I would love to keep my hand in. Andy

    OSR Nantwich

    On the way back from friends in Cheshire yesterday I drove past Nantwich and in a village just outside Nantwich there was a field of OSR in full flower. You lucky beeks in that area will no doubt be saving a few pounds on syrup this year.

    Over winter brood and super

    When over wintering with a brood and super, what are your thoughts about the super. Do you place it at 90degrees to the brood box to make it easier to remove in the spring or in line so all the frames run in the same direction? I have seen both done but wondered what the consensus is on the...
