	It's up to you, John, as to what you do.  The irises have done
their thing.  If the pod parent is a good named variety and I had plenty
of space, I would let the seeds mature, and plant them later.  If I didn't
think much of the pod parent, I would snap off the pod and trash it.  Some
of our Dykes' medalists have come from bee pods, but you know one parent.
