Yippee! Thanks to that video of R. Cayeux showing how to pollinate, I've finally succeeded at getting some pollinations to take. Because I wasn't sure how well this would work, or even if it would work at all, I've been doing a lot of daubing. But the success rate seems pretty high. Now I'll need to be creative in figuring out what to do with all of the seed--provided I can keep it intact until ripe.

Hey, ! That;s great! I wanted to try a little "hybridizing" myself, this year, but I've been too busy, and the weather has been too messed up. Seems I add more things to my list of "Things I want to do", than I ever scratch off as "Done That"!!...Arlyn

Good job Brett. Let us know how many seeds you sow.

Good Going! Your're over the first hurdle. That's a good video, it showed me what I was doing wrong. I'm going to try a few too.

Sometimes it helps to make a list of pod locations so you can keep an eye on them as they turn brown.
