    Salmonberry ends about the same time as the maple or at least it did this year, I was not sure about it as I have lots on my property and did not see many bees working it, we also have huckleberry but again it was more the bumble bees on it than anything else. They were still bringing in lots of pollen but their comb building definatley cut way back until the blackberry kicked in.

    Just a reminder, this is a forum for people to introduce themselves. Let's move the conversation to another forum when it gets beyond a welcome.
