If you are considering beekeeping, this is truly ‘An Absolute Beginner’s Guide’. It is well written and easy to understand. The chapters begin with ‘why’ and end with the first harvest. You learn the different types of bees, where to put your hives, and how to re-queen. Not only is it broken down into chapters, but also by seasons. The photographs are clear and follow with what you are reading. You will also find pages that highlight other beekeepers, who discuss their successes and challenges. The Bee Diary is filled with hands-on information that furthers your study of keeping bees.
