Black Locust and Alfalfa

Black Locust trees are blooming across the metro area. Black Locust trees produce very nice honey and the bees can pack it in.
Alfalfa should be blooming now. Farmers should have cut hay around the first week of June. The wet weather has prevented them from cutting the hay. Beekeepers benefit from the farmers misfortune.
