    Default How is your crop looking?

    Not much of a honey flow where I'm at. Even with the strongest colonies it is pretty light. Seems like the blooming times are a little out of whack too.

    In Northeastern Ohio, clover (dutch) and bridsfoot trefoil, Basswood is ready to bloom any day. So far bees are storing a lot, even my swarms have stores of honey. So Far So Good.

    A very successful local farmer always answered that question the same way when I was a kid, "It varies". That is always a good answer.

    You are right, it varies, ours is only sticky and sweet. Actually it is too early to tell. Will the Alfalfa continue to bloom in a drought, or do we need a rain to "freshen em up".

    Alfalfa does best with wet feet, cool nights and hot days. Give it that and there aren't enough bees to use it up. If you could just arrange that for all of us the next six weeks, we will all be filthy rich.
