Cucumbers and Tomatoes

Anonymous added on June 3, 2011 | Answered

I've planted a small vegetable garden - tomatoes, cucumbers, zucchini, etc. Now I have a lot of flowers on tomatoes and cucumbers, but this year there are no bees or other insects to do pollination (previous years they were plenty). What should I do in this situation? Will any cucumbers grow without insects?
