This year we went BIG sunflower at the Montessori School.
They are such a great late summer nectar/pollen source.
I planted about 4 rows - 300 foot long mixing varieties.
I have a lot of mouths in that apiary to feed.
lots of Lemon Queen
Which I grew for the
Great Sunflower Project.
We wanted to get more involved with the counting,
but I believe the results would have been skewed having 15+ bee
colonies in the immediate vicinity. But that doesn't mean YOU can't be more involved.
Okay, maybe not this year, but next year get on it!
