{Disarmed} Hyb: Pods

  • Subject: [PHOTO] {Disarmed} [iris-photos] Hyb: Pods

Here's a big bee pod on LINGERING TOUCH.  My guess is that it will be empty.  The deep folds or furrows that can be seen in the shell, plus its curvature, usually mean an empty pod  --  BUT NOT ALWAYS!  So, check.
Also, look bottom left.  There's a curled-over pod that DOES have the bug in the hole.
A word here about very small pods  --  I mean about the size of an agate.  (Does anyone shoot marbles anymore?)  I snapped one off dismissively yesterday, then saw the tell-tale color within  --  9 nice seeds.  Actually, I've had as many as 17 seeds from such a small pod.  --  Griff
