Was on here a while ago, the dream of a lsb went out the window so I left. After a marriage breakup I'm flatting on 7 acres out Rolleston way and loving it.

I'm on two chain road, Rolleston. Flatmate owns the place. I've got the waterpump set properly, paddocks being irrigated and managed for a mix of ewes and lambs totalling 14 in number and one horse, half a dozen chooks, one cat and one dog.

Currently between colonies of bees, mine died out at the end of winter as I didn't have the hive handy and couldn't inspect it regularly. Victims of my marriage breakup unfortunately.

Working as an irrigation technician and loving it.

She sounds a very lucky flatmate then Aquila. We are just off the Dunsandel/Hororata Rd. I am concerned about the predicted dry summer here. Out of 4 hives I lost one last year. I am lucky to have a Bee Keeper neighbour. We have split a good healthy hive to replace it this year. I don't know why I struggle so much to learn about my bees, why when it comes to chickens and sheep, it all sinks in easily. And I love my bees, it just seems more complicated. We have a small irrigation sprinkler, but I'm sure the water should shoot out better than it does, the neighbours certainly does and its the same one.
