Last year we were well into summer by now and my bees were ready to swarm. his year I am finding it hard to get warm days for any bee keeping at all. I haven't started any queen rearing yet!
I am delaying sowing tender plants like beans and corn (which I sowed early last year) to see which way the season will jump. I will start sowing those next week.
On the plus side we aren't short of rain this year! and the tomatoes in the greenhouse with the solar heat store are doing well and already in flower.
