All of my squash, cucumber, and zucchini plants were looking beautiful, lots of male flowers, a few female starting to form. Then we had that huge wind storm three weeks ago (in Virginia), and it blew off all my male flowers! Now the female ones are out and about, but there aren't any male flowers to pollinate (I don't have any bees in the area, so hand pollination is necessary). Is it possible to pollinate without any male flowers? Or do I need to get into my neighbor's garden and "borrow" a few male one?

40 years a gardener and going strong with SFG.
There are certain pursuits which, if not wholly poetic and true, do at least suggest a nobler and finer relation to nature than we know. The keeping of bees, for instance. ~ Henry David Thoreau
