Re: Storing Pollen

Ok folks, this is beginning to sound really good.  When is the best time
of day or best conditions under which to harvest pollen.  Do you want it
when they are first opened or after they have been open a few hours? 
How about the stigmatic lip?  Early morning, late afternoon, when is the
best time to hybridize?  I have a lot of problems with this.  We leave
the house to go to work at 6:10 a.m. and often don't get home until
about 5:00 p.m.  If the wind blows all day (more often than not) then
there doesn't seem to be much moisture left on the stigmatic lip.  Maybe
I could run home at lunch (only 20 miles) and do my thing?

of rain a year.  Our average wind speed is 12.5 mph and we have an
