The great pumpkin has spoken and now it's onward to the compost pile. Spring time brings some volunteer pumpkins. #pumpkin #compost #pumpkinsagainstpipelines #squashbees #growagarden

Gobble, gobble! Turkey day wouldn't be complete without squash. Roast it, puree it or put it in a pie — whatever you do, be sure to thank the bees for this fall treat.

Monday Mood: 😴 Inspired by male squash bees who take afternoon naps inside closed squash blossoms. Entomologist Dr. Lopez-Uribe from @NCState talks more about this interesting bee species in the video via the link in our bio.

Whoa. Dudes. Today I learned about squash bees. There were 7 that came out of the patty pan squash blossom (video), and at least 5 in the pumpkin squash blossom (picture). Apparently, the males nap during the day in the closed blossoms. The one in the picture looks like he's keeping guard while the others rest or feast on the nectar. #neature #nature #pollinators #savethebees #squash #squashbees #squashblossoms #bees #bee #growyourown #garden at Wisconsin

I spent the morning at the Peponapis Squash Bee Research Project Open House in Lakefield. I learned a lot and thoroughly enjoyed it! I met some other adorable creatures as well! Even Kermit made an appearance...

Everyday we #measure the availability of #resources to #squashbees at different times of day. We indicate whether 25 #flowers are in the A-not yet open, B-fully open, C-edges wilted, D-fully wilted state. #peponapisproject #peponapispruinosa #squashflowers #resourceavailability #fieldseason #indicator #phd

320 #milkcrates were #donated by @kawartha_dairy! We are so #thankful for their donation to the #peponapisproject as we can now create portable nesting sites for #squashbees. Thank you also to @hardwinterbreadco for lending us their giant van. We got 161 crates in there! #tetris #bobcaygeon #icecreambreak #kawarthadairy at Kawartha Dairy

The pumpkin seeds have germinated! These are pipeline fighter pumpkins , the seeds of resistance , of course they are solar powered with some chlorophyll. We need a little daily science to get through 2017 in America. This is also the Great Plains story of the three sisters of corn, beans and pumpkins planted together and also I've added the forth sister of the north , sunflower. Green thumbs to bring the change. #pumpkins #pipelinefighters #pumpkinsoverpipelines #threesistercrops #ilovetheprairie #ediblelandscape #squashbees #bees #pollinatorgarden #sunflower #spottedlikeahorsebeans #poncacorn #pawneebeans #greenthumb

Squash bees in a squash bloom. I came across about 15 bees "trapped" inside closed flowers while I was collecting squash blossoms last week. A little research revealed that this is just what male squash bees do. I messed up their routine. 😂 #squashblossoms #squashplant #squash #bees #squashbees #beesofinstagram #yellowflower #growagarden #flowersofinstagram #getoutside #gardensofinstagram #challengeingredient

SQUASH BEES! It's so exciting to see these native bees in the garden. Squash bees forage on flowers of pumpkins, gourds & of course squash. They look similar to honey bees but are solitary insects that are ground nesters. Too cute! If you want to see these in your garden, make sure you are not using pesticides or fungicides. #flybydayhoney #squashbees #pumpkinblossom #garden #pesticidefree #nativebees #nativepollinators #savethepollinators #chattanooga #tennessee
