Squash in the garden

Because squash are supposed to be such prolific producers, we only planted one plant hoping to get enough from it for use now and some to freeze. I am especially fond of squash, so when it started flowering, I was thrilled. For a week now, it has been flowering and finally, yesterday, we had the first female flower. Since I've yet to see bees in the garden, I decided to pollinate it myself with a small paint brush. Here's hoping this is the first of many squash in our garden.
