Feed the Pollinators

July 15, 2019

And they will help feed you.

 

It's that time of year when we see the lovely and tasty results of a great team effort, ours and the bees'.

 

 

 

Without the bumble bees we wouldn't have these beautiful purple cherry tomatoes.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Or luscious strawberries. And believe me, these are luscious, sweet strawberries when ripe.

 

 

 

 

To create habitat and to nourish the bumble bees, honey bees, leaf cutting bees, digger bees, flower flies, wool carder bees, and others that visit our garden, we plant many kinds, mostly native flowering plants.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Such as the Silver Lupines Lupinus albifrons.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Various native buckwheat, like the Red Buckwheat Eriogonum grande rubescens

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

California poppies Eschscholzia californica

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Lambs Ears Stachys byzantina

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

As you know from previous posts, these are just some of the plants we have for the pollinators.

And one of the favorites of the Yellow-Faced Bumble Bees is the California poppy.
