I've been keeping this blog for all of my beekeeping years and I am beginning my 17th year of beekeeping in April 2022. 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.

Growing a Greener World on Public Television - just not in Atlanta

Joe Lamp'l, host of Growing a Greener World on Public Television, lives in the northern parts of Atlanta.  However, his wonderful show about organic gardening is not available to the Atlanta market.  He films here and all over the country on issues of gardening and visited me to talk about the bees a couple of months ago.

I fed him and his camera guy biscuits and honey when we were all done.  Nothing better than Southern biscuits with honey soaking into them!

Here's the episode he filmed in part in my backyard with my equipment and my bees. (Even if we can't watch it in Atlanta, we CAN watch it on the Internet.)  Check out some of Joe's other wonderful episodes while you are visiting his page.

Joe is signed up to take the MABA short course that Julia and I are putting together for the bee club.  I am hoping I will get to help him get started in beekeeping in that way as well.
