zucchini flowers. Shoda, how do you hand pollinate with a brush? What does a male vs female flower look like?

Bush Beans - I think the little green cucumber beetle below has thinned out my harvest. Shoda: San Leandro Garden Update July15 Img_0522
The leaves are pockmarked with bites. How many beans should a plant produce? The beans I do have are nice. They seem to go for leaves not fruit.

OH! I hate cucumber beetles, I really, really, really do. Evil or Very Mad

Your plants look great!

To pollinate with a brush, you literally just stick a brush in there, wipe it around, and move on to the next flower.

A male flower has a skinny stem only. A female flower typically has what looks like a miniature fruit behind it. From what I've seen, often the male flowers come first, and the female flowers come a little later on.

How is your garden growing?? :?:

P.S. REALLY cute frog!!!

From what I understand, the biggest threat of the cucumber beetle adult is spreading disease. It that right?

From what I have read you really need the big guns. The more poisonous of the sprays. Organics such as pyrethrim and perethrim, I think (the second is not organic). They are both good bug killers but pretty broad spectrum.
