There is roughly an eight acre field next to my property that a local farmer discs once or twice a year, but has not planted in the last four or five years.
Clover is said to be a great cover crop, and I know it could not only be planted here pretty easily, but it would offer many future benefits as well. Now, I realize that bees forage over a wide area, but if this plot were planted with nothing but white clover, would that provide a noticeable influx of clover honey coming in durring the appropriate time durring the summer?
I'm tired of looking at this barren, weedy field year after year. Clover is cheap to plant, does well here and will benefit any future crops. As a beekeeper, how desireable is a large field of clover?
Just another crazy idea or could I get some great honey from this?
