In this Vlog, I show you how to polinate your own zucchini plants! For the past two years, we havent seen many bees, and I am not sure why. So I have had to take it upon myself to polinate our zukes to ensure we get produce.
(Please excuse the fact that this was taken at 6:30 AM while I was still recooping from a crazy 4th of July weekend with family and friends. Also, the computer with video editing software is no longer working, which is why you see me swat at a skeeter at the end! This video is completely unedited...and it shows!)
You can see the zuke growing...only 2 days after pollinating!
I have wanted to keep bees for a few years now, but Todd finally gave in to the chickens this year after swearing since the day we bought this house that I would never have chickens (due to an incident as a child.) It may take a couple more years to talk him into letting me keep bees. :-) I wont push my luck, just yet. I'm thankful for the chickens and the eggs they are laying!
