Sheds glorious sheds


Our garden shed is probably an ancient monument.  It has been repaired numerous times, and the door widened as our mowers became wider in an effort to reduce the number of rows needed to finish the job.  I had tried to persuade the OH to get a new one when we last had this one reroofed.  I am afraid I refuse to ender its dark and foreboding interior.  It almost certainly has been a home to the dreaded glis glis and if they are there again I don’t want to come face to face.

At last the decision was made.  We need to replace it with a larger one.  But when the man came to estimate he suggested it made more sense to rebuild the front and out double doors on the old one. And put a new shed beside the old one which could be a bee shed.  A bee shed for me.  A 15 ft by 6ft bee shed.

Just think of how much room there will be in this shed.  To be fair, it will be a little away from my hives – but there is the possibility of power being taken into it.

And this estimate was some time ago now.  The due date for the shed (which is made to suit customers) is the week beginning 14th October.  Just over a week away.  Time to get very excited.   Here is a link to our local shedmakers

Definitely past it - whatever it was - I may have blinked and missed it. New to beekeeping and totally entranced by the experience. That is probably all you need to know until I work out how secure this blog is. Great fan of recycling - see ilovefreegle.org to find your local group. Save things from landfill. Pass on your surplus, locally, for free or ask for things you need in case you can have someone's cast off again for free.
