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.

What I Did for Love.....

Just got back from the GBA meeting at Lake Blackshear.  Gina and I had a great time.  Because our newsletter is a relatively new feature of GBA, we were cheered on quite a bit by the membership.  We are occupying as a team, one voting position on the board of directors, so every time we voted, we grabbed each other's hand and raised two arms as one.  The attendees seemed to find that amusing and we got attention for the newsletter and what we are working on.

We came back with a number of promises from people to write articles for us.

I was the last speaker of the meeting, talking about why one might want to get certified and work one's way through the ranks of certified, journey(wo)man and Master Beekeeper.  I called the talk, "What I Did for Love" - relevant, given that Valentine's Day is this coming week.

Gina kindly took a photo of me as the talk was about to begin:
