Thumb of 2018-02-08/whoatemylettuce/8163f1

I was trying to pick them out but got scared that I might take away the pollen hence I accidentally drop and lost them haha



Please let me know Thank you

The flower looks chewed? Looks like caterpillar droppings to me. Shrug!

Squash flower can be fried. Taste very good.
