Re: HYB: weather-rain

	Betty, the gullywashers we have had here after a round of 
pollinating have ruined all flowers and there were no takes. I listen 
to the weatherman before a session.

	Just for the heck of it the other evening near dark, I smeared some 
pollen, and it looks like every one took.  I think a take can occur 
almost anytime except after a hard rain.  Many daubers say it must be 
done in the middle of the day, but that is not true.  I have made 
many successful crosses after coming home from work...most of my 
hybridizing has been done after 5 p.m.

	I also use a lot of rebloomer pollen that was gathered in Oct or Nov 
and frozen for several months.
