Yesterday at the farmers' market: As I was buying zucchini because my plants got eaten by groundhogs this year and I mentioned that LAST year I got no zucchinis from any of my 4 plants. He asked about the bees. I am more than well aware of the neonics problem and the pesticide problem in general. BUT I am more aware now than I was last summer. THIS summer I noticed the physical absence of honey bees, and the much reduced presence of bumblebees and butterflies. Last summer, I had not yet noticed AND I thought there had been enough pollinators of SOME kind to get the job done. Advice from other gardeners told me I had all male flowers and no female. WHAT BOTHERS ME ABOUT THAT is that the gardeners I asked weren't fully awake about the bee thing. NOBODY really discussed bees with me.
