It won't be long and I'll have to set up a vegetable stand at the end of our driveway.....

Although it doesn't look great, here's a shot of the zucchini plant we have in a 20" pot on our patio. Unfortunately, not knowing better, I put a wire 'tomato cage' around the plant to keep it somewhat contained. Big mistake. The large yellow blossoms are hidden in the plant and the bees cannot find them.



However, IF you get a little paint brush or Q-Tip, you can become just like the bees and pollinate the flowers.....(I feel almost like a 'wanton woman' for performing a 'sex act' on my zucchini blossoms)

And I'm SO excited that our labors have come to the point of creating a 'baby zucchini'......look closely and you can see it growing with the shriveled blossom at the end:

Pretty plant, Beth!

But we already knew you were a wanton woman -- er, I mean a wonton woman. Because of your predilection for stir frys, of course.
