When I started this blog the theme was beekeeping and general sanity. However, I found the bees a bit scary, buidling flat pack beehives was a challenge and a whole host of other anxities emerged, which led to another theme of manliness (this started with I Am Not A Beeman). I have also recently discovered foraging and become a New Dad, but I always try to make sure that every post has a beekeeping angle!
