Are there other things we can grow to feed our bees in the winter? Sugar is so pricey these days and I have a lot of land available to me to grow crops, I wondered if I could grow something to make a sweet syrup for winter feeding for my bees, ie., Stevia, or anything else. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Or should I just keep buying those bags of sugar?
