Buckwheat for the Honey Bees

We sowed approximately an acre of buckwheat in July to provide  late season blooms for our honey bees, as well as a smother crop to get rid of weeds in the field.  The field is a buzzing with energy with a wide variety of bees enjoying the buckwheat; it is joyful sound.  We will leave most of the honey for the bees to provide nutrition through the winter, but I am looking forward to having a taste of buckwheat honey.  My father, Keith Wells, dropped by to see how the bees were doing and admire the lovely buckwheat blooms.
