Kathy, (aka "Bessie"), and I began our beekeeping experience in the fall of 2008, when we began a year-long course in beekeeping through the Indian Creek Nature Center in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. We got our first package of bees in April of 2009. At the suggestion of our daughter, Jessica, we are logging our beekeeping experience. Hope you find it interesting. It has been interesting, rewarding and entertaining for us as well.
Walter Kelley Newsletter
Walter T. Kelley Company is a beekeeping products business located in Kentucky. They turn out one of the best newsletters I've seen from any of the companies. They're always informative and entertaining as well. I particularly enjoyed two articles in this month's issue--I Wonder by Lady Spirit Moon and Dronings from a Queen Bee by Charlotte Hubbard. Both writers show the deep feelings they have for their bees, feelings shared by many beekeepers. You can check it out at their website under the Education tab on the page or you can subscribe. https://kelleybees.com/Newsletter/
