Default Question

Craig,
Do you think it is in any way possible have someone show exactly how to cross a tomato on Saturday at Tomatopalooza??? I have tried numerous times and I am sure it is something simple that I am missing that once I see it do will click.

Well, I know that there is a large garden where we will hold the event....we could wander out there and take a few flowers apart (will have to ask first of course!)

I did take Tim out to the garden when things quieted down (I think Rena had already left), showed him how to emasculate the flower. Pollen was not shedding (it was very humid), so I talked him through what to do next. Now, if I can only follow my own directions! I may go for a cross or two in the late crop, just for practice (though, come to think of it, I will have Citron and White Bush growing - could go for a cross with Lucky Cross, and another with Cherokee Purple).
