On your squash? Snorts with piggy laughter. Have I told you that I love squash? XOXO – Bacon
How did I guess that?!!! Well, you would be in–wait for it–hog heaven over here! 😀
Snorts with piggy laughter. I know I would be even if there wasn’t food… because YOU my friend would be there. ❤ XOXO – Bacon
I have no idea where my squash bees are, as I have no squash plants. 😦
Don’t feel too bad! They’re kind of a mess–running vines everywhere and getting powdery mildew (especially in our hot, muggy summers). The things I do for bees!!! 😉
When the bees are finished with those blossoms, dredge ’em in some tempura batter and give ’em a quick fry-up. Yum yum!
So *that’s* what you do with those blossoms! 🙂
The bees have their job, I have mine – and we don’t bother each other. 🙂
Our two zucchini plants are doing fine. A third or fourth, would mean they’re taking over the world starting with our kitchen. If we were to have a yellow squash instead the third zucchini plant, they begin to scheme with each other. 😉
I have yet to experience the dreaded attack of the zucchini but maybe one day… 😉
Lori, I got Bees but they seem to adore the Russian Sage. However, man oh man, have I got MILDEW extraordinaire on the volunteer squash plants out front under the roses. And HUGE squash – maybe pumpkins? Remember the improv piece about the English Gardener and cukes? Hello, Old Friend!
Bees love sage!!! Great to hear from you!!! Keep on growin’!
Summer has come to an end here in the Netherlands…but yours…allways nice to see green elsewhere. have yourself a nice week. 🙂
