Orchard Blooming - Pollination Time!

As promised I am continuing the process of the orchard. Before leaving for Maui, HI my husband pollinated the trees. We had only a few blooms, the weather had been poor, the pollinating pear tree was not blooming and hope of bees was low.

My sister-in-law knew of an old pear tree in the park which was blooming. Off we went to the park and collected pollen.

Upon returning my husband, Jesse, pollinated the pear tree. He also did the Cherry Trees as show here.

He used a q-tip to do the pollinating.

Now I want to show a movie on how it was done. I did not take the time to edit the ending, which you will notice. (No comments! Ha!)
Enjoy! Judy
