Nudge Nudge, Hint Hint by John Yates

yates_nudgenudgehinthint-2John Yates wrote a series of monthly articles for the Plymouth Branch of the Devon Beekeepers’ Association during the period August 1989 – October 1992. These were published  as a most successful book later in 1992. The volume is full of wise advice and beekeeping insight which while written for the micro-climate around Plymouth can be applied anywhere in Great Britain so long as notice is taken of regional climate which in some parts is 3 or 4 weeks in arrears.

The Bad Beekeepers’ club by Bill Turnbull

B Turnbull - the bad beekeepers club

Hello. My name is Bill and I’m a bad beekeeper. A really bad beekeeper.’
So begins Bill Turnbull’s charming and often hilarious account of how he stumbled into the world of beekeeping (sometimes literally). Despite many setbacks – including being stung (twice) on his first day of training – beekeeping somehow taught Bill a great deal about himself, and the world around him.
