    Chicken chaser:
    I just picked it up at the local farm store , not sure the variety. Yes, it is dark brown and not nearly as sweet as most of the common honeys . It does well in mid summer beacuse it hardly needs any rain to germinate

    We sowed ours, in shallow soil, and ran the drag over it to cover it lightly. It does not like to be planted deeply. The heirloom varieties will self seed, the newer ones will not.

    Good luck!

    All I did was use the teeth on my box blade to bust up the soil. That was about 3 weeks ago and it finally rained yesterday. So I'm hopeful to see them pop up soon.
