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.

Thank you, Bees, for Blueberries!

I have had six blueberry bushes in my yard for the last three years. No blueberries ever came to fruition! This year with the age of the bushes and the rain, and, of course, the bees, I actually have blueberries!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I ate three right off the bush yesterday. Yummm.

Thank you, bees!

  1. Linda I noticed the same thing with my bushes. With the increase of pollinators came an increase in berries.
    Which also came an increase in deer eating my blueberry bushes LOL :)

  2. I've lost blueberries for the past couple of years due to late freeze and delay in picking (the bluejays got them before I did) but this year I have tons of berries. What's funny, though, is that although this is the first year with honeybees in the garden, bumblebees were actually the ones that worked the blueberries. My honeybees seemed to be too busy with pollen from another source. I'll be covering my bushes with net in the next few days to keep the birds from feasting again.
