    While I was picking my crop of Fort Kent Blackberries the bees were abuzz.  I wondered why but didn't pay attention as my attention was spent on berry picking.  I just assumed they were Yellow Jackets sucking on the fruit.  Yesterday I learned the object of their attention; they had been pollinating flowers.  While I was picking the last straggler berries I noticed developing green berries.  Fort Kent is producing a second crop.
    This second crop is going to be significantly less than the first crop and I hope the berries ripen before the frosts come.  Has anyone else had a second crop of berries?
