Welcome - Explore my Blog

I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I am beginning my 16th year of beekeeping in April 2021. 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. Along the way, I've passed a number of certification levels and am now a
Master Beekeeper Enjoy with me as I learn and grow as a beekeeper.

Pour Seven, but Who's Counting?

For what it's worth, the yellow wax poured into a relatively pretty block - still with flaws on the corners and edges.  I polished it with panty hose, wrapped it in plastic and then.....

while my granddaughter took her nap today, I REPOURED the light wax for pour number SEVEN.  I poured this one into the Pyrex glass mold that had the blemishes on it in my first try, but this time instead of going without mold release, I used Ivory liquid.  Maybe this one will be the best, but if not, I'm entering the flawed but really pretty pour number SIX.

Or maybe there will be yet another pour before the contest on Sunday afternoon!
