After weeks of nights in the 40's - 50s F, spring did its thing this past weekend and the nighttime temperatures dropped below freezing. It seems everything survived though, except one beautiful tomato plant that already had good sized fruit on it. The bees hunkered down for the couple of cold days and I hardly saw a peep from them.
But today, the bees will wake up to a big surprise! Right in the middle of the freeze, one of our crabapple trees burst into full bloom. Great timing, as the days and weeks ahead are returning to mild temperatures and the bees need the pollen and nectar to begin building for the summer ahead.
