Well, i guess i figured wrong on heat doing in the buckwheat. The rain we.ve been getting past few weeks has kicked it in to hyper-grow. Got 2 hives for collecting nectar and pollen on the fields since last saturday. Take that you dang weeds!
I never tasted buckwheat honey before. Read up some on it, says an acre of buckwheat is capable of producing enough nectar to make 10 gallons of honey per day.
Geezzz! thinking more realistically, around 5 per day for this crop. Yet theres probably another week or two to go for blossoms.
To boot picked 3 dozen ears corn off small patch in old paddock by barn, and took a peak at tater plants, there setting up nice taters also.
