I was walking through the orchard last Thursday taking a look at the fruit flowers and was a little perturbed to see only a few bees on each tree. They were busy and I am sure that their work has pollinated all the flowers. I then walked the fields and found broccoli in flower that was positively humming with so many bees. There were honey bees and their native cousins galore. It seems that this was the place to ‘bee’ for the best food, not on the peach blossoms. Unfortunately, Roberto was in the process of closing down the joint with his mower, preparing new beds to plant later this month. No bees were harmed in the process. They are smart enough to get out of the way. The next day, I did see a marvelous increase in activity on the peach blossoms.
