If you had a frost when the buds were opened, then no fruit this year.  We only have a few apples this year..........we have 100 fruit trees and 50% are apple...........Last year we had many apples that we filled our root cellar...and some to the neighbors & food bank........we will be lucky if we get a dozen apples this year.  All fruit trees need to be sprayed fall and again in spring with dormant oil.  That smothers the bugs.  We spray up to the bud stage.......after the bud opens we only spray the trunks.  We need bees for polunation.  We plant flowers for the bees & butterflies.  Ph should be tested...........should be 5.0-6.5............we do lime every spring and composted horse or cow manure.  Our ground was formed from a vocanic eruption many years ago and we I had the ground tested they said that we needed lime...........we can't do enough lime.............but you can buy a tester reasonable.....after the season they are usually on sale.  Happy Summer.
