I love my vegetable garden . . . in the winter. I grow tons of salad greens, carrots, and other winter crops. But I've never been a good summer vegetable gardener. I forget to water, it's too hot to weed, and I always end up giving too many tomatoes to the squirrels.
This spring I decided to let my winter vegetables go to seed. I watched the broccoli go to flower, the bees come to the kale flowers, and the rest of my vegetables attract bees, beetles, and butterflies. And now I have seeds for my next garden.
I also found a new site about bees where real bee experts answer questions. Jim Cane, a real bee expert, just happened to have the answer to the question I posted above. Read his answer to see which vegetables need bees.
