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.

It's Almost Bee Season

How do I know?  Well, the Metro Atlanta Beekeepers' Short Course is tomorrow.  Today I went over the the Atlanta Botanical Garden where it is held to put the lip balms I had made into the goody bags.  Gina's team was hard at work stuffing the goody bags.  My granddaughter, Lark, pushed her cousin, Max, who is one in his stroller back and forth in the room so I could put the lip balms in the bags!

Below Philip, Patty, Melissa, and Gina are putting together 112 goody bags.

Edie was also helping. 

And below is our fearless leader and fantastic chairperson of this course, Gina Gallucci.

When I returned home, waiting in my email box was this gorgeous movie that Steve Esau had made under Atlanta's blue sky of the bees feeding in the red maple again today.

So, you can see why I think bee season is just around the corner.  I just hope we don't have a two week spring like last year!
