Not much but at least I've discovered my problem. Actually I have 2 reasons for my poor garden production. The beds and plants are doing well; but, except for the cucumbers, strawberries, some tomatoes, and a couple of banana peppers, I'm getting hardly any yield. I've only gotten 1 yellow squash and 2 zucchinis. ZERO cantaloupes, even though the plants look great and the flowers are there, somewhat hidden.
As I sat in the yard swatting mosquitoes one early evening and looking around it dawned on me... I was so focused on the veggies I wanted that I forgot to plant enough flowers! The lantana was slow coming back, the flowers up the teepee are slow growing, we skipped the sunflowers this year, and there are just a few marigolds in the raised beds (and only 1 really blooming). We simply haven't had many pollinators and I haven't had the umph to hand pollinate. Another thing is that we usually have tons and tons of honey bees - they love the white weed flower that generally proliferates in our back yard. Hardly any bees this year, and much to dh's delight, no white weed flowers so far. I finally started seeing bees several weeks ago and put a hanging basket of flowers between the beds. That helped bring them to that area.
