Hi Mary, and all!
Yes, I would love to share my experience with
Too Sweet! First, I'll let you all know that this is my first
year hybridizing. WHAT a trip! So much fun went into it that I can't
see how *famous* :-) hybridizers could consider it as work! Thanks to all
of you out there who encouraged me!
Too Sweet was my most productive pod
parent. Yesterday I harvested all the pods in my garden that had not
turned yellow, since I have to get busy and transplant before the dreaded "W"
season sets in (accompanied by s.n.o.w. . . this is Michigan, folks!) From
Two crosses on Too Sweet, I got two pods. (uncanny, isn't
it?) First was Too Sweet X Mountain View in which I
harvested 63 seeds. The second pod on TS was Too Sweet X
Fogbound produced 60 seeds. Now I have to find a place to
put the seedlings that germinate!
Paternal crosses with TS were Sambuca
X T.S. . . only 8 seeds; Carl and Sissy X T.S., 48 seeds;
and Ice Cream Treat X T.S. did not take.
I sure hope this wasn't too confusing for
everyone! Excitement has been the key highlight for my gardening
experience this past summer, and it might just take a toll on my
typing. I have been exploring new avenues with the iris world, and loving
every bit of it!
By the way, does anyone know what you get when you
cross a Pink with a Black??
Loving my hobby, (!)
