Ive read your blog, because I also went chemical free last year. I really appreciate you doing this. It helps me compare results with what I'm doing. BTW, how do you post a blog? To whom, or where do you submit it? I've been documenting my misadventures from the beginning.

ALSO, if you're looking for queens that are from chemical free stock, try BJORN APIARIES. He raises hygienic queens that would give you good genetic diversity to mix in with your stock. I can get you contact info if you need.
