Welcome - Explore my Blog

I've been keeping this blog for nine years and I began my 10th year of beekeeping in April 2015. Now there are about 1270 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.

Wax from the Solar Wax Melter

Here it is - the gorgeous collection of wax from the solar wax melter this year. I love the yellow golden color and wish I could share the smell with you through the Internet. Wax is delicious to smell when it is melted like this. I am constantly amazed that I can put a glob of wax, dirt, pollen, bee parts, etc. on top of a paper towel and these are the results.

Now I will start the process of trying to create a wax block for the Honey Contest at my Metro Atlanta Beekeepers Club picnic on September 14. Last year I poured the block at least 10 times!
