Bloom Goes The Squash Blossom

The first of three flowers finally opened up today in our as-yet-to-be-determined squash patch (I’m pretty sure they’re pumpkin, but there’s a chance they could be butternut). If you look close, positioned behind the flower’s pistil is a honeybee wasting no time getting the pollination process started.

Fingers crossed as hot weather — of which we are having right now — can cause trouble for any vegetable development. Case in point, the sun veritably melted this flower before mid-day.
