Yesterday I did not see bees foraging the buckwheat. Today they are foraging in force.
I replanted some bare patches where I must not have spread the seeds evenly, today. I also planted buckwheat seed among the cornstalks, where I harvested that last of the sweetcorn today.
Other bee forage:
Very active on Chinese Chive, compact version.
Autumn Joy - type Sedum starting to bloom and activity is growing.
Active on the remaining borage and oregano.

I'm impressed with how long the oregano blooms and is foraged. It looks almost done, but the bees appear to seek out every last flower. When they are done, I want to save seeds for starting a much larger patch next year.
