Boys and Girls

I love learning new things about my garden plants.... A few days ago I read that there are boy and girl squash plants. Bees spread the pollen from the boys to the girls, and - ta da - we have vegetables!

So, how do we tell girls from boys? Well, it turns out that it's not as hard as you might think.

If you look to the center of the flower, boys kinda look like boys....

and girls kinda look like girls!

A few days later, we can see the results of all those boy
and girl squash flowers.
