 I was wondering if strawberries make a good honey crop? I know the berries benefit greatly from the bees but am wondering if the honey crop is good from the strawberries.

not so much here.  they have to much other stuff to work and strawberries are not a 1st choice.  they will work what is available, so if strawberries are all that's around, they will go to that.  i do see bumblebees on mine, but that's about it.

.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

 According to Walt Kelly, a commercial beek that lives very near "the strawberry capital of the world", Plant City, Fl.
