I purchased the Journal as a gift for my son who is new to the beekeeping world. He was thrilled with the journal and loves the layout and interesting facts and tidbits throughout the pages. Know it'll make the experience a wonderful one recording his first year with his hives. Had spoke with a very nice and quite informative gentleman about hives and ended up purchasing a gift card so he can select the type of hive he'd like to begin with. Thanks!
This journal has been a wonderful addition to my beekeeping. It is small enough to be easy to carry around with me, but large enough to be easy to write in. It has illustrations and tips, which make it nice to look through, and it has encouraged me to write. I record inspections, what is in bloom, and lessons that I have learned along the way. It would make a nice gift.
This journal is beautiful. The pictures and prompts encourage me to write and sketch about my bees. The hints and helpful notes have helped me understand my bees, I have found I'm much more "on track" with caring for my bees just so I can fill out my journal! The one and only improvement would be for the journal to be spiral bound so that it's a bit easier to draw and write.
