About Bees

Bees are critical for fertilizing the flowers of plants so that fruit or vegetables can develop. Right now, there is a world-wide crisis of bee populations dropping drastically.  There are many theories of why this is happening, including lack of genetic diversity, environment encroachment by humans, a virus, pesticide use and many others.

So imagine my delight when I found not one, but THREE bees in my brand new spaghetti squash flower!
