I'm a gardener and a newbie beekeeper, using a Warre hive and carved log hives named Bee Beard, Bee-atrice, and Grand Kids Log Hive. I'm trying the 'natural' method of keeping bees...little intervention, no miticides, no antibiotics, no feeding (log hive). My bees all came from swarms.
I've never been accused of being a good writer, but I love to take photos and talk about them. When the sun is out and the bees are flying it's hard to get any work out of me...my wife will attest to that.
