My lone hive is on an apple orchard across the street from my house. The owner has another beek bring in hives to pollinate. The hives have only been thee for a couple weeks. I noticed yesterday that the trees already have apples that are about the size of grapes and I see no flowers. It got m wandering what good, if any the bees would be doing the apple trees now? Do they bloom in stages or are the trees that have apples on them done for the season. If so it seems the bees were brought in a little late this year.
