    Most of my buc wheat has gone to seed and I was wandering if there is an easy way to collect the seeds. Some bees were on the flowers that do exist.

    Nice. Just know that the honey will be super dark. I had an acre of buckwheat and pulled 2 supers of buckwheat honey, dark like molasses. Good thing about buckwheat it reseeds itself.

    I have heard you can pull the stalks and shake em out over a sheet. This was the worst year of buckwheat for me. It has been so dry. Just got rain and it took off, but nothing like years past. This was the first year I have had any bees around it. Im hoping to get a better crop next year. G
