The Beekeeping Handbook by Vivian Head (a review)


The Beekeeping Handbook actually surprised me. I figured it would be a rehashing of the same old same old. In a way, it is, however done in such a way that you don't fall asleep. 

Ms. Head's instructions and advice are clear and concise.  The yearly check list is something that I find immensely helpful. The book will actually replace all the other reference materials that I have on bee keeping, as she has included everything, including trouble shooting. It's easy to follow, without muddying the waters or causing confusion in the what you should do's.

I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in beekeeping. It's release in April is good timing for those of you that wish to get into the practice this year. You can pre-order at Fox Chapel Publishing.

Hm. My guy's got 3lbs of bees coming in a few weeks. His first try at beekeeping. Perhaps I need to go put and get him a little bee-gift. :)

We got bees last weekend. I am so excited. Maybe I should save up some egg money and pick up a copy!
