Bee and pesticides don't mix

Another reason to try to be as organic as possible. LINK
I was temped to spray my fruit this year to see if we could get a better crop but after reading this article I will plan on buying Liberty and Freedom apples so I can avoid extra chemicals.
Our garden and small field have been without chemical fertilizers, weed control or pesticides for 7 years now. But the rest of our farm that is rented by a local farmer gets soaked with whatever Monsanto tells him he needs to dump on it.
One of these days when I can find some small equipment that works and I can afford we won't need to rent out the land and will get it back to being safe crop land.

Still clinging to my God and my guns,
