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.

New Meet-up Group in Atlanta for Talking About Keeping Bees Naturally

Julia and I are starting a meetup group in Atlanta called:

Atlanta Beekeeping the Natural Way

to provide a place where people can discuss all kinds of ways of beekeeping. We often say that beekeeping is an art as well as a science. Since there are so many ways of keeping bees and thinking about bees, we wanted to find a way to talk more freely about the various approaches to bees.

Julia and I both keep bees naturally - letting the queen have an unlimited broodnest; trying to leave enough honey on the hives so that the bees don't need to have sugar water because they have their own honey to eat; and avoiding poisons in the hive.

If you are in the Atlanta area and want to come to our Meetup, the first meeting is on May 14 at the Buckhead Library in the small conference room from 6:30 - 7:45.  Going forward we will be meeting the second Thursday of the month from 6:30 - 7:45 (when they will kick us out of the library)!

Please join us, if you are interested.

In our first gathering, Julia and I will speak some about how we keep bees and the general overview of Beekeeping the Natural Way. Then we'll all talk about what people want to get from the group, share experiences and shape the form of our gathering going forward.
