	Over the years, I have on occasion accidentally pollinated the 
same open flower with different pollenl especially when I was using 
some green tags.  When I discovered the mistake, I immediately 
made a notation in my records and also keep the same tags, 
labels with the seedlings until they bloomed.  You could always tell 
that the father was 'This' or 'That.'

	About stripping the falls off a pollinated flower, this is to make 
sure your cross was true. . . . that you visited the flower before a 
bumblebee.....or the pollen you used was not viable and the 
bumblebee's was.  In my experience, this is not something to 
worry about.
