In the Garden - Busy Little Bees
They may be one of the last things you want to think about this spring, but without bees, we'd have a lot less food: the little creatures offer a huge service to gardeners by pollinating vegetable flowers so they can make fruit. Bees have a hard time surviving the use of pesticides and other harmful chemicals, but in the past few years beekeeping has become very popular, and bee populations are growing again.
Bees collect pollen and nectar on their legs each time they visit a plant. A little of this pollen falls into the other flowers they touch, and voila: pollination!

As always, good luck in your garden.
