HYB: Storing pollen
  • Subject: HYB: Storing pollen

I started storing pollen because of my frustration with incessant
spring rains ruining pollen at critical time. 
If you strip the pollen with a Q Tip, all you get is fluffy, dry pollen.
I load both ends and wind up in spring with pollen-on-a-stick, very
quick and handy with my stubby fingers, poor hand-eye coordination
and limited close vision. 
I don't grow very much of anything, so also run around in spring before
expected storms, grabbing pollen before it's ruined, for use later.
Tomatoes dead today, 8 days ahead of average.
