Re: Clover question
In my area of Texas, crimson clover is the most dependable source of surplus honey. Usually always make a super and often 2 supers (mediums); but the colonies must be built up early enough to take advantage. In our area that means by early April (on ungrazed pasures) or mid April, on grazed pastures where the cows are pulled from the pastures early April.
White sweet clover [mid May] is the most productive honey plant in Texas on heavy dark soils [we generall have sandy loam]. Yellow sweet is suppose to start producing about 2 weeks earlier than white, but I have no experience with the yellow.
