I am having problems getting my squash plants to set fruit. This is a major lack of honey bees in the area. Could that be the problem? Also the canteloupe have not produced any melons and peas have been very slow to produce. These are in a raised bed.

How long ago did you plant these guys? Are you feeding them every 2-3 weeks? Since the heat has set in, things do slow a bit also. I would recommend planting some summer flowering plants in or near your garden to encourage them to visit your veggies. You can hand pollinate your squash!

How often do you feed them and what do you use?
