Buckwheat for the Bees

BuckwheatThis is buckwheat. We grow throughout the season flowers on which our bees can forage, like buckwheat. And phacelia. Both plants also very good for building up soil fertility. I believe that our area can no longer sustain honeybees naturally. The summers are too cold and there is lack of fowers for the bees. But we keep bees, we breed them. And we help them a bit, we let them express all their natural behaviour and overwinter them on honey, never feed sugar. And so we hope to make a little contribution to their survival. See if we manage, bee it as it may.
