    if i were to plant a field of honey plants for my bees....say 15 acers worth.....what would be a good choice and why....things like self sustaining an self seeding are a plus.....its not a life or death question mind you....just curious about one day down the road.

    Sweet clover (Melilotus spp). Great honey and a long period of flowering.
