If children are in the room, you may want them to divert their eyes, because what you are about to see is the mating ritual of the zucchini plant!
I’ve had issues with my zucchini plant not producing enough vegetables, although it blooms over and over again. After some quick searching I found that sometimes the bees don’t do their job quite right and the blooms are actually not being pollinated.
Makes sense. My strawberries don’t pollinate well either.
It might be time to look into keeping bees.
So if you ever have this problem, here’s what you do:
4. Take the exposed male bloom and hand pollinate the female bloom.
5. Wait for the new zucchini to grow! And grow they will. I’ve had to do this multiple times the last couple weeks and it works amazingly well.
Funny that I have to pollinate my own plants when everyone else seems to have excess every year.
Anyone else have issues?
