Thanks for the update! I'm glad I'm not the only one who leaves plants specifically for the pollinators even when I know it's too late to produce food.
Watching bees and zucchini flowers is pretty funny - they come out totally covered head to foot in pollen. It's as if they were down there bathing in the stuff!
It's turned cold here also, and the days have been damp, dreary and short. I need to get all the squash picked and I'd like to sprinkle some seeds that might germinate despite the weather and build roots so they can take off when spring comes.
