This site has been specifically been made to relate my experiences starting off as a beekeeper.
As there were some people who wanted to read the articles I put on my Dutch blog page who don’t speak or read Dutch. As I’m bilingual it would only take time to basically translate some of the Dutch articles to English. Not all, as not all articles are equally related to beekeeping. Never mind the Dutchies, they can join the rest of the world and learn English. So I will no longer be translating my posts from Dutch to English, I will only be writing them in English and posting them to this blog (and the wordpress.com site because there are still people viewing that site).
I am accustomed to the Dutch beekeeping “shop talk” so I will get a lot of the English terminology wrong.
Well, I’ll get on with it.
PS: If you find a mistake, be it either a spelling or grammatical mistake or a mistake in my bee practices I’d love to hear about it. I’m a dyslectic and a starting beekeeper so I’m sure to be making mistakes on both fronts.
PPS: I also just wanted to add that my background is that of a biologist who studied to become a molecular biologist which in no way helps me in this endeavor. So please call me on my BS.
