reeree: A Bumblebee usually finds flowers by serendipity and will report back to her nest with directions if its a particularly good patch of something. (only late summer bumblebees are male drones)
Flowers use colour, scent, huge petals, perfume or other alluring methods to attract insects. There is an Iris flower that even mimics the look and markings of a female bee to get the males to land on it!
So your Bumblebee probably knows there should be flowers on your veg patch and was having a good look around to find them
