Garden Update (A Day Late!)

The Big Boys have flowers on them!!!
Amazing...they've only been potted a short while and were kinda sad looking when I got them, nowhere near looking like the healthy specimens you see below:


And the squash have what I believe are the beginnings of buds on them...Hmmm...do you have to have HONEYbees to pollenate - or will ANY bee do? I saw a black bee (not a bumblebee-type, more a wasp-type today...

I was at my sis-in-law's this morning and oh my...! Her squash plants are LOADED with blossoms! I'm keeping my fingers crossed that her plants survive (no signs of beetles yet...)

Butterflies and moths actually pollinate some plants, so I am suspecting that the bees you saw will work just fine. My tomatoes are in a similar state, and I was thrilled to eat a few sugar peas the other day.
