I did last year, not so far this year. Shouldn't have to as I got some mason bees.

I pollinate. Bees can be rare here. They spray the area for mosquitos and sand flies.

My summer squash seems to be taking a break from producing. Does yours do that? Will it start again?

Well, I pulled up what was left of my summer squash. Vines were withered. Only winter squash growing now

Couldn't you grow another crop? I can start them here in July and get them to maturity before the first frost. Or, is your hot hot weather an issue?

What a bummer! can you grow them as a fall crop or something?? Seems like that would be pretty equivalent to my "summer" (such as it is). Confused

(or, did you get enough that you don't need/want more?)

Well, I can try. Have seeds. Any problem putting them in the same spot the same year?

I'm not much of an expert on that (I tend to plan my garden pretty randomly), but maybe only if you have a major problem with squash bugs or something ? Confused

Not a major problem, but I think I'll move them
