262 sept 19 pollinator

Sept 19 – So I see this bumblebee rooting around in the boy flower on my zucchini, which is still trying to produce even though is has mightily failed this year.  I think some uncharitable thoughts at the bumblebee and my reward was to watch it fly off without visiting the female flower.  From now on I shall think only charitable happy thoughts at pollinators.

Look at all that pollen it could have deposited in the female flower.  I might have gotten a zucchini before the frosts came…
