Backyard Beekeeping for Beginners


We found a wonderful step-by-step slideshow on backyard beekeeping by Kim Flottum on

If you can garden, you can be a beekeeper. It takes about the same amount of time and effort to keep your veggies producing as it does to keep bees. One big bonus of beekeeping: They help your vegetables, flower and other garden plants thrive! Oh, and then — of course — there’s the honey (not to mention the joy of a new hobby, and the knowledge that you’re doing something to help bees at a time when this critical pollinator is in crisis.)

Check out the slideshow and instructions here and maybe there’s some fresh honey in your future.
