Notes from George W. Imirie Jr.


This portion of the web site is focused on extracting some of the thoughts and opinions that George had organized by topic. Trying to find some of these topics by browsing through the different monthly publications was not a simple task. Organizing them this way should make getting to the information easier. Time allowing, I will create blocks of George’s suggestions organized by the pertinent month.

Ideally, this should provide a quick way of reading George’s guidance that is relevant, by month, of what a beekeeper should be doing and paying attention to in Central Maryland.
