Welcome - Explore my Blog

I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I am beginning my 19th year of beekeeping in April 2024. 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.Master Beekeeper Enjoy with me as I learn and grow as a beekeeper.

Goody Bags for the Short Course

It's my job to put together the "goody bags" for the Metro Atlanta Beekeepers Short Course that happens this Saturday, January 19th at the Atlanta Botanical Garden. (not too late to register, if you're interested)

The goody bag is a compilation of wonderful items that I put in the bag, but that come from other places - it's a great gift for the participants, if I say so, myself.Included in the goody bag are:
It's like going to a party - the participants at the Short Course will have a lot of fun, get to eat together and talk bees, and go home with a goody bag full of treasures.

  2. I would so love to have courses like this here in NZ, I must ring around other clubs and see what is availabe - great goody bag !! Pleased for you re Queen in hive - I am flat out extracting down this end of the world ..

  3. Hi Linda - I just now randomly stumbled across your blog. I registered for the short course last week (and I'm really, really excited about it)! Your pictures are fantastic, and it's great to see that it's possible to keep bees ITP. :) Look forward to meeting you on Saturday.
