1) Terminal pods are from crosses where the terminal was the only  one 
pollinated and I didn't get back to later blooms. I do tend to  jump on the first 
bloom to open.  
2) When I used two or more flowers (primary terminal & primary branch)  if 
only one took, it was usually the one on the branch that took.  Possible  
explanation . . . if two blooms were open, perchance the top one was too old?  With 
Lunar Whitewash I pollinated 3 blooms, but only the bottom two took.   No pod 
in the terminal.  
Looks like I have 27 takes.  Couple more that could still make  it.  Over 20 
are single pods.  (I've got half a dozen bee pods in the  1812 section alone.) 
 I think I can tell the air pods from the bee  pods.  It will be good to see 
how I've done at harvest  time.  I guessed right last year.
