the brits know how to grow big veg. from here
They had set up house in one of the plum trees. Ira and I put our bee suits on and Ira climbed the ladder while I held it. He was only trying to trim the branch a bit but the vibration made half the swarm fall off at my feet. The bees were pissed off. I managed not to scream and run off, but remained calmly holding the ladder while Ira got the rest of the bees into a box. They stayed in the box while Ira assembled a new hive. They are now in their new home busily drawing out comb.
