Re: Bees on Cotton
not sure about the pollen sub, but i have read the honey from cotton crystalizes really fast. i had some cotton nearby last year, and my last batch of honey went to sugar in less than two weeks after extracting it. there was also a lot of goldenrod at the time, which may have been a factor in the crystalizing.
i decided i won't harvest honey as late in the fall for selling, but i might take a little and let it crystalize. i found that crystalized honey makes great patties for emergency feeding.
beekeeping since june 2010, +/- 20 hives, tf
