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.

Of Duct Tape and Rapid Feeders

Every time I turn around, I find another use for duct tape.  When I was a Girl Scout leader, my co-leader and I kept count for the more than 100 uses we found for the bandana.  I have now found a new use for the center cone of the Rapid Feeder!

My grandchildren came over to dye Easter eggs on Saturday and we didn't have enough cups for the egg dye.  I went to the nearby CVS, but they didn't carry any plastic drinking cups like we sometimes have used.  So we put to work the center cup of the Rapid Feeder as a dye holder:

The kids had fun and thanks to the help of the Rapid Feeder, we dyed beautiful eggs.

Afterwards I ran the Rapid Feeder cups through the dishwasher in case any dye residue affected the honey for the bees in the feeder later on.
