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.

Science Night at Montgomery Elementary

Tonight was Science and Technology night at Montgomery Elementary School in Atlanta. I was asked to be the beekeeper and talk about the bees. Somehow I managed to get away without a photo of my display - I took a blue nuc box, frames of wax in process and completely drawn, honey to taste, lip balm, beeswax, candles, children's books about bees and a slide show loop about inspecting a bee hive that I put together for the short course this Saturday.

I did get some cute pictures of the kids who tried on my grandson's bee veil - they thought it was just the bees knees to get to try it on (and one mother). Actually several of the parents wanted to try on the veil and asked great questions. The kids mostly wanted to taste the honey!

I had a great time. Enjoy the adorable kid pictures below.

  1. Love this! Sounds like you had a wonderful time. What a bunch of adorable budding beekeepers.

  2. It looks like a really fun session. When I went to a primary school to do sessions I was told I couldn't give them honey. Stupid fear of liability I guess. I would have loved to take 5 or 6 difference flavoured honeys for them to try and compare.
