It is just wonderful to see a bee...since I did not blog last summer let me explain. I had two or three tomato plants in pots and also a couple cucumbers potted. I had grown some the year before and enjoyed them. Not quite like having a garden, but better than nothing.
Nothing got pollinated. I saw one honeybee in my yard and that is all. I am not exaggerating. I would sit and watch for them, walk in the yard and look for them. None. Even my coneflowers did not have bees...I saw one type of bee one time. Normally, once they start blooming something was always on them. Last year nothing.
So, no pollinators for my vegetables...after it was too late, I wondered if I could have taken a q-tip and pollinated them.
