Today the hi temperature was about 54 with rain and I am as anxious for nice warm weather as anybody is. Saturdays hi temperature is supposed to be 83 and warm for about a week after that. Some of the apple blossoms are wide open and by next week, they all will be open. If we get a frost, it will be the end of the apples. If they have enough time to develop into little green apples then it will take a killing frost or freeze. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Since the apple blossoms are opening, I had to turn the orchard bees loose. The bottom two houses contain the new bees. The one on the left is partially filled tubes and the one on the right are filled tubes. The two on top are new tubes for this years bees. I only hope they get enough pollen and nectar to survive.
As usual, all comments are welcome. John
