Well it’s mid winter. Although I miss seeing our bees working the flowers in the warm breeze and being able to photograph them, now is the time for me to work for them. I have been working toward providing the best forage opportunities for them when they emerge from the hive in a few months. Now is the time to research and obtain wildflower seeds to sow in early spring. I have found a real openness by a variety of seed suppliers and Ag related companies to help provide solid forage options. The photo below is an example of the generosity of multiple seed suppliers through gifts of wildflower seeds. We sowed about an acre and a half last spring (2015) and we are planning on adding another 2 acres this year.
