Welcome - Explore my Blog

I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I am beginning my 17th year of beekeeping in April 2022. 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.

The Master Gardener Hour on Radio Sandy Springs

I was invited to join Master Gardener Rena Sartain on her radio show, The Master Gardener Hour, broadcast by Radio Sandy Springs. We had such a good time talking about bees that she invited me back for a second hour. So our conversations about bees and beekeeping will be on the radio on Saturday, June 26 at 11 AM EDT and a second hour the following Saturday, July 3 at 11 AM EDT.

I believe it will also be archived so that you can listen to it even if you are not up and going at 11 EDT on either of those Saturdays. To find the archived show, go to this page and scroll down to the bottom of the page. There you can click on one of the two dates (6/26 or 7/3) to hear the archived conversation between Rena and me.

We talked about bees, beekeeping, bee pests, what it takes to get started, and many other bee topics. I had fun and I hope if you listen, you will as well.

Just to reinforce what I said about my cucumbers on the radio show, here's a picture of one day's harvest (notice how straight all the cucumbers are).

  1. I was able to listen to portion of the radio broadcast and caught the comment about cucumbers. I noticed a couple of weeks ago the honey bees were abuzz in our cucumbers and now we are picking perfectly shaped cukes as well. I hadn't made the connection until now. We have watermelons blooming now, hoping for success there too.

  2. I am an avid believer of the properties of local honey! Do you sell to the public? I live in Sandy Springs.
