Welcome - Explore my Blog

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.

Organic Gardening Magazine Article

In their October/November issue, Organic Gardening Magazine will include an article by Janet Davis on beekeeping featuring three beekeepers - one in Vancouver, one in Chicago, and me!  Yesterday a photographer for the magazine, Greg Miller and his assistant, Tim, spent about three hours at my house shooting pictures of the bees, me, my house, my bee things.  It was such fun.

Greg has taken a number of beekeeping assignments for various magazines so he was not at all afraid to lie down right next to the hive to get a good shot of the girls as they flew in and out of the hive.

I can't wait to see his shots in the magazine.  If you follow the link to his website, his lead photo is a shoot he did of another beekeeper and his son.

When he finished with this hive, we opened almost every hive in my bee yard to look for various photo ops, but my favorite moment was one when he showed me how he captures a sunbeam…..he had the smoker puffing into the area where sun was shining through the leaves of the trees and the smoke delineated the sunbeam - I could see the sunbeam as if it were a concrete object…..just gorgeous.
