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.

Speaking to Coweta Beekeepers

On Monday night in terrible Atlanta weather, I spoke to the Coweta Beekeepers near Newnan, Georgia.  They have a great facility for meeting - it's professionally set up and nearly perfect.  They meet at the agricultural center for their county.  I wish we had more farmers in downtown Atlanta so we could have such a facility available.

There are extension agents in North Fulton and South Fulton Counties, but that's a long haul for us city folks.

(Thanks to Debbie Lorincz, a Coweta member, for taking these photos)

I talked about ways to make your beekeeping simpler.  It was fun.  It's a talk I've given often with some variation from previous times, but I had a good time giving it and the questions were great.  I talked about hive box size, foundationless frames, water sources, entrance reducers, crush and strain honey harvest....

I've had emails from a number of the club members - which is always nice afterwards.

Tomorrow I'll be speaking to the Mecklenburg County beekeepers in Charlotte, NC.  It's a very busy bee week.  Then I'm driving to Rabun County to check on my bees at Robin and Mary's house.
