Busy Bees


The bees have been busy pollinating our crops!  The sunflowers are loaded with bees, who are in turn loaded with pollen.  They look like they are wearing puffy yellow pants!

I am also happy to report that we have some squash bees!  Here is one inside a flower along with his buddy the cucumber beetle.

Their work is paying off – we have quite a few winter squash on their way!  And the melons are coming too…  (knock on wood).
