The misadventures of Thorny Guy and Lady Bug gardening in Minnesota

The apple trees are finally flowering. This is the first one so far. When I went out this morning there were zero bees which worries me that they may not get pollinated. I say we should plant as many flowers as possible to lure the bees over!
We planted two new honeycrisp trees in the orchard last week. These trees are specially bred to withstand Minnesota's cold winters and the apples happen to be delicious. There is also a pear tree and some kind of cherry. I can't wait for some fruit.
