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.

MABA Short Course 2013

We just finished the Metro Atlanta Beekeepers annual short course.  There were 112 people in the course and we had a great day on the 20th of January.  If you missed it this year, we'll offer it on the 3rd Saturday of January next year.  Next year Julia and I are in charge of it.  Gina Gallucci has been heading it up for the last few years and she has done a great job.  I'm scared to follow in her footsteps!

I gave the last talk of the course before a panel of all the speakers so I don't have photos of the end parts of the day, but here is a slideshow to give you an idea of the numbers of people there for the bees this year.

 Click on the slideshow to get to see the pictures full sized and the captions that go with them.
