I’ve been struggling to get flowers to grow around the edges of the vegetable garden to attract pollinators. I’ve planted seeds, sprouts, bulbs…. all to no avail.
However, the newest compost heap seems to get overrun with bees every time I dump a new supply of melons and fruits in it.
I would never have guessed it was that easy to attract pollinators to my garden.
final note: I wandered around the garden yesterday evening, and I’m seeing the effects of days without sufficient water. I’m going to have to get out there tomorrow and do some gardening to try and get the dead bits pruned out, and get some grass pulled up so it will quit choking my actual veggie plants to death. I’m going to need lots of sunscreen, a big floppy hat, and lots of water.
