Buckwheat + Beehives = delicious honey in the making


Side view of the hives - now at six, in our apiary;

Buckwheat sprouts in my garden

Why Buckwheat? the nectar produces a darker and more complex honey than citrus.
 and evidently, it is good for you; 
The study found that a small dose of buckwheat honey given before bedtime provided better relief of nighttime cough and sleep difficulty in children than no treatment or dextromethorphan (DM), a cough suppressant found in many over-the-counter cold medications." http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/12/071203164750.htm
