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.

Bee Culture Article That I Wrote

I was so pleasantly surprised to find an article that I wrote had been accepted by Bee Culture and is in this month's issue:

I wrote about how to establish a hive inspection program for your bee club.  We have a great hive inspection program at Metro Atlanta that is now in its fourth year and doing well with good participation.  I had sent the article in at the beginning of the year and didn't have any idea that it had been chosen for publication!

This is my second article in Bee Culture.  I had an article in the February issue earlier this year on "Treating Your Speaker Well" - about how a bee club should manage guest speakers.

Here's what the article looks like in the magazine:

It's two pages - I felt quite honored that mine was chosen.


  1. Congratulations, sadly I don't get this in the UK.

  2. At the end of the month, I'll put the article up on the "Pages" section of this site. What beekeeping magazines do you have in the UK?

  3. Get article, Linda! I've been following your blog for more than a year (since I became a beek) and have learned a lot here, and enjoy reading about your bee adventures. When I got that issue yesterday, I didn't notice it was by you. Too bad you didn't put a link to your blog at the end of the article!

    Sounds like the inspection program you guys have developed works great. Can't help thinking its sad just how much legal paperwork we have to think about these days, but necessary I suppose.

    When's the next article?

  4. I don't know - I send in articles and either Kim Flottum chooses them or he doesn't need them. I've sent in three and two of them have been published. I'm thinking of sending another one in on a topic that I've given as a talk to a number of bee clubs....but again, I'm not on the staff - just randomly sending them in - and either they are chosen or not. I am not in control of that!
