So that's what happned to my squash this year. The bees must just like the spaghetti kind. I made some really good squash pickles last year, but they were the water bath kind that take awhile. I'll share the recipe if you want it.

If you know how to tell the male flower from the female one, you can pollinate the blossoms yourself. I've never done it, but I'm sure you can find instructions on line.

Great link Jenny! Thanks! So far, I have not had any trouble, but those instructions and pictures will come in very helpful if I ever do have issues.

Here is the recipe, by the way. Mine did not have any onions in it though. I copied the recipe down off of TV and I don't think he mentioned onions (or maybe I just missed that part).
