Apples, Plums and Wine Tasting
The last few weeks have been a bit hectic for me and Steph. For one reason or another we have had a lot of time together and have kept ourselves busy. One thing we've been making will have to wait a while (until after Christmas) before I do a post about it,...

Introduction
Hi there. I'm a Beekeeper, I brew a bit of mead, wine and beer from time to time and enjoy gardening. I dream of becoming self sustained or as close to it as possible. Me and my wife also keep chickens but the biggest and best thing in our life at the moment is our baby going on toddler daughter. She is soooo perfect!
