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.

Metro Atlanta Beekeepers Short Course on January 21 - REGISTER NOW!

Our local bee club, the Metro Atlanta Beekeepers Club, offers its short course on Saturday January 21 from 8 - 4:30.  We have an agenda that is filled with experienced, well-qualified speakers and the course is second to none in Georgia.  Some of our speakers include Jennifer Berry, Keith Fielder, Curtis Gentry  (and even me!)  To see earlier posts about previous short courses, click hereherehereherehere.

There's a continental breakfast beginning at 8 and the speakers begin at 9.  We provide a delicious lunch for participants as well with the opportunity to sit at a table with an experienced beekeeper and talk about getting started.

Participants go home at the end of the day with enough knowledge to get started, with a list of places to order bees and best of all, with an incredible "Goody Bag" filled with beekeeping catalogs, honey, a candle, lip balm, and best of all, their own copy of Keith Delaplane's great basic book of beekeeping:  First Lessons in Beekeeping.  

We have had participants come from as far away as Mississippi - it's an informative, enthusiasm-generating, all-around-great course.  If you can come, you won't regret it.

  1. Jennifer Berry just got added to the list of speakers for our club's Short Course (Eastern MO Beekeepers) as well. She is a great speaker, and can't wait to see the presentation.

    I think these courses are a great time, and I always learn something new!
