I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I am beginning my 18th year of beekeeping in April 2023. 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.

Ice Cream for Bees

Haagen-Dazs recognizes the importance of bees to the creation of their ice cream. To that end they have created a wonderful bee-friendly site for you to enjoy.

Bees are so important in our agricultural production in the US. Ice cream is a particularly delicious product that relies on the honeybee.

This morning I heard a feature on NPR about how Haagen-Dazs is working to help the bees. I couldn't wait to get to a computer to see what their website had done. It's fun to see the container for their upcoming flavor: Vanilla Honey Bee

The flavor was created to support their efforts to make the plight of the honeybee more obvious to all of us ice cream eaters!

    Enjoy your blog. I am thinking of starting in bees. Do you have a post where you list what and where you purchased your starting equipment? What equipment did you wish you purchased right away, what did you purchase the first year, the second? I liked the video on the crush & strain method. Looking at Dadents staarting kits the foundations are plastic. I guess that wouldn't work?
