The Results of Hand Pollinating Squash

About two weeks ago, I started hand pollinating my squash. (To learn how, see Sex in the Garden ~ Hand Pollinating Squash.) It was easier than I thought, and I enjoyed going out to the garden in the morning to see what flowers were open. I can’t do much on work days because I leave so early in the morning, the squash flowers aren’t open yet; and then they’re closed up when I get home. However, I’ve pollinated daily on the last two weekends. After only two weeks, I think I can say it has been successful! Pictoral results of hand pollinating squash!
