I hadn't put two and two together that the Linda of Linda T's blog was tillie here; many, many, many thanks, Linda/tillie, for all that you've offered to the world! Does that sound like an overstatement? I don't think it is! I was like a kid in a candy store finding your blog (which is, I think, the third hit you get with "beekeeping blog" in Google, a testament to its popularity), and I couldn't believe how much amazing information was there, written as plain as day and with beautiful pictures to boot, for anyone in the world to see, learn from, and apply to their own lives and ecosystems.
Also, some of the folks at my short course last weekend poo-poo'ed organic methods. I was so thankful to have your words and pictures in my mind to know that going without chemicals not only can be done, but can be done so kindly, effectively, and beautifully.
