    We planted a cover crop of Buckwheat and it got a lot of attention this morning so I grabbed the camera.

    This was a garden of buckwheat probably about 50 yards long, the camera was placed about 25 yards away zoomed in about 80% of a 60X lens, so say 50x, equivalent to a 2500mm SLR 50mm lens. I put it in Aperture Priority mode and set it to F11 to extend the field of focus, but then I realized that probably all went out the window when I switched to video. Added free Youtube music, otherwise it would just be planes flying overhead.

    Yo have to give it about 30 seconds before the Youtube compression algorithm gives you full HD, at least I do but it might be my connection.

    Buckwheat honey is real popular up north, but not so much around here. It has a strong taste and is very dark.I got a jar one time at a state bee convention. They sometimes have a
    "honey swap table" where you can leave a jar and take a jar from some other region.
    It is always relaxing for me to sit and watch the bees work a field.
