From the article:
So, your tomato crop was pretty lousy last summer. Blame it on the bees, or the lack thereof.

That's the bee word from county apiary inspector H.L. "Sonny" Barker.


Excuse me but tomatos are not pollinated by honeybees.

Sincerely,
Brendhan

Hard to believe the inspector was as clueless as the article made him sound. I'm wondering if the reporter/writer maybe heard some bits about pollination and crop yield and threw in the tomato example herself.
