Thanks Layne,  do you mean I should get the pollen in the evening?
I leave for work at 6:00 in the morning, start work at 7:00 and go on
first break at 9:15.  Do you think I could collect the pollen before 6 in
the morning
and pollinate at that time too?  This is going to take some juggling.  How
dry
should the pollen be?  How long does it take to dry?
Thanks again!
