DW says that she will loan me her tweezers to remove petals and anthers. I don't know if they will help. I tried using tiny, sharp scissors last time. Came up with that idea on my own. It doesn't seem to have been a good one. The flowers self-pollinated despite my tampering.
We are each other's harvest; we are each other's business; we are each other's magnitude and bond. ~ Gwendolyn Brooks
