April 2010

Fruit Blossom:  This is the month of blossom.  The apple trees have a fantastic bloom on them this year, which promises a good harvest if the flowers are pollinated well.  We rely on bumble bees to do the pollination job now, as there are so few honey bees around any more.  What has surprised me this month is the incredible blossom on the freshly planted pear trees.  They shouldnt be allowed to crop in their first year, but I think I'll just remove most of the flowers but let a few fruit develop.
