HYB: weather-rain

From: StorYlade@aol.com


The dry pollen is relatively easy.  Cut some buds to open inside.  It's 
especially helpful if there are patches of time when you get a break between 
thunderstorms.  I always take blooms in before a rain, and sometimes I even 
use the pollen after the rain!   

This brings me to another point to ponder.  I have been told not to worry 
about rains that come after the cross.  Either the cross takes at the time of 
pollination or it doesn't and rain doesn't change it either way!!!  Comes 
back to being a little bit pregnant.  It just doesn't happen.  The chance of 
rain washing pollen out before it 'takes' is 0 to none.  Or so I've been told.
