This is a journal I will be keeping to document my experiences, both successful and unsuccessful, in beekeeping. This will be my first year, 2011, keeping bees. We'll see how it goes. I will be keeping bees naturally, letting them build on foundationless frames, and without medication. This is also my first blog I have ever done and I am by no means a journalist or English major. So, if you see grammatical errors of any and all kinds don't be surprised. The looks of things on the blog will probably change several times before I come up with something that I like.

I got the first coat of primer on the hives.  After seeing several videos of bees entering hives I've noticed that the bees don't actually use the landing board.  So, I'm not sure if I'll build another one or not.  Probably not.  I have one of the telescoping covers made and both inner covers. I just never took a picture of them.
