The black bumble bee is nesting in our poly tunnel, she has chosen the right place as hopefully she will have babies that will pollinate our crops of tomatoes , cucumbers, peppers, and the crops out side. You can see the hole she is digging, and wiggling back wards taking out the soil. It’s fascinating to watch her. Just out side the poly tunnel we have a hedge of black thorn, this hedge is in bloom with white flowers, that in September will give us sloes. The two plum trees are blooming so she may venture as fas as the orchard. We have named her black georgette. 😁 I have sent to friends of the earth for a bee kit, which has in it an identification chart, wild flower seeds and many other things. I will blog about her progress in futre blogs.
