Strawberries and honey flow
« on: March 22, 2009, 11:13:25 AM »
 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.
