I saw a Bee!

Not so unusual because they are coming into the garden to get water but not lingering. However the other day while i was racing around pollinating pumpkins i saw a Bee covered in pumpkin pollen and lingering, looking for the next flowers, which made me think my work at pollinating pumpkins was coming to an end. In previous years we went from getting a few zucchinis to getting several bags full due to the bees doing the work for us.

The Jap pumpkins are doing  well compared to other varieties - if only they stored. We have also planted ironbark and butternut squash. We shall wait and see what the bees do and what the cooler weather does later in the year.
