Scary Things In The Garden

Scary Things in the Garden that shouldn't be Scary

Bees - Bees are so important to garden crops that if we didn't have enough bees around, the vegetables and fruit wouldn't get pollinated enough to produce good crops.  Most bees that visit our gardens are gentle and if you don't bother them they won't bother you.  When you see them buzzing around from flower to flower they are helping to produce our food.  The next time you see a bee, look closely at its legs.  If it has been visiting many flowers that day, its legs will look fuzzy or furry.  That is pollen on its legs.  We need the pollen to produce fruit, vegetables and more flowers. 

Be kind to scary things in your garden.

You need them to grow healthy plants.
