Chicory and iron weed
Here in SW Mo. I have tons of chicory and iron weed,but rarely ever see a bee on them?Goldenrod isn!t much better. The old time beeks say it!s the soil ? We do have wild white and blue aster[they work the blue aster more]also spanish needle,wild mint,milkweed,wild sunflowers and some clovers.My neighbor across the road has 30 ac. of alfalfa that has bloomed longer between cuts because of all the rain,and still that way in aug.he,he.I thanked him for letting my bees forage longer,he didn!t think that was funny.I gave him a qt. of honey and he said your welcome.Do youi think it!s in the soil or some other factor.Thanks in advance for your replies.
