I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I am beginning my 16th year of beekeeping in April 2021. Now there are more than 1300 posts on this blog. Please use the search bar below to search the blog for other posts on a subject in which you are interested. You can also click on the "label" at the end of a post and all posts with that label will show up. At the very bottom of this page is a list of all the labels I've used.

Even if you find one post on the subject, I've posted a lot on basic beekeeping skills like installing bees, harvesting honey, inspecting the hive, etc. so be sure to search for more once you've found a topic of interest to you. And watch the useful videos and slide shows on the sidebar. All of them have captions. Please share posts of interest via Facebook, Pinterest, etc.

I began this blog to chronicle my beekeeping experiences. I have read lots of beekeeping books, but nothing takes the place of either hands-on experience with an experienced beekeeper or good pictures of the process. I want people to have a clearer picture of what to expect in their beekeeping so I post pictures and write about my beekeeping saga here. Along the way, I've passed a number of certification levels and am now a
Master Beekeeper Enjoy with me as I learn and grow as a beekeeper.

It Was a Rainy Night in Georgia

Finally - we had a rainy night in Georgia and actually waked up to a rainy day! I can't believe it. We've had so little rain that I've forgotten how the beeyard looks on a rainy day. I just had to post a picture because in this drought, this is a very unusual sight!

I'm thrilled for the rain, but the hives look a little forlorn. I'm so used to seeing the girls out and about, foraging, cleaning, zooming out of the hives.

    Are you going to leave the supers with the bottom full deep, or eventually going to all mediums. Just curious, as I am trying to switch over to all mediums.

    Your deck looks so inviting so nice and damp. I am sure the bees will be very happy.


  2. I am in the process of switching to all mediums. The two hives that have deeps in the bottom were both started from nucs this year and the nucs were deeps - so I put them both in deep boxes. All the new hives are in mediums - the small swarm and Proteus Bee are both in 8 frame mediums. Bermuda (the hive at the upper left) who barely made it through the winter is in all medium boxes.
