A hundred miles northeast of you we lost the flow more or less last week. You might be getting sumac or clover that hasn't shriveled up yet. I say more or less because at least one yard is still bringing in, I suspect, onion. They sit on about three acres that are blooming good and I see them working the flowers hard in the evenings. We need some rain soon.

Clover is in need of rain... there's milkweed in bloom in my area.

Sorry to hikjack, are there any plants whose blooms produce bad tasting honey?
I have a flower in my backyard that looks like a daisy but smells like a sewer. It must be this one http://unclestinky.wordpress.com/2008/01/09/daisies-beautiful-toe-jam-flowers/

Seems our flow has slowed a bit. What's the prospects?
