Dan, the more bees in your garden the better! Bees pollinate many fruits and vegetables and with a large number of bees you are almost guaranteed a higher yield. Actually, half of the beekeeping business is hired out by large outfits that grow almonds, oranges, tomatoes, etc, to pollinate their crops. If it wasn't for bees, the worlds food production would be drastically cut and many people would suffer.

Wasps on the other hand rob the bees of both their honey and pollen and are considered pests by many in the industry. They make special wasp traps and wasp sprays that can take care of them, but make sure you do not kill the bees! If they get too bad you can always wear a sweater, jeans, and a veil (cheap) and you will not get stung. When I work bees around my yard in Texas that is all I wear; I don't wear the full on bee suit unless I'm working in a large yard (80 plus hives).

Anyway I hope it turns out good for you and maybe you should throw some of those auto-flowering seeds somewhere in the garden eh?

the support is appreciated, sugar!...but alas, the foxglove are failing miserably...however...the onions, snowpeas, pansies, blue cornflowers, broccoli, cauliflower and brussel sprouts...ALL seem to be doing rather well. I will take some photos this weekend, and post them below.
