I know it because Grandma Lee said so. And I know it because the bees buzzed it in my ear. And well, it’s a scientific fact. Perhaps we should start with that. In fact, about one-third of the human diet is derived from insect-pollinated plants, and honey bees are responsible for 80 percent of this pollination.
Allow me to unpack that statement. When you hear the word “pollination,” it is referring to the process by which a pollinator, most commonly a honeybee, magically transforms a flower into a fruit/vegetable.
Okay there I go again, it’s not magic. It’s science. But for me, it’s the same! The reality is pollination begins with the flower.
