Just naturally occurring at the moment M3tal... although I have suggested some manual assistance with an old toothbrush...

Given the slow set of the beans, and copious amounts of "yet to set" cucumber flowers...

I will be introducing a "stingless" native bee hive into the greenhouse to assist with polllination......

Peter & Divonne have departed for a lengthy overseas trip, possibly for as long as eight months...
