I feel like a new daddy! I just (finally) see some of my new seedlings coming up! I was beginning to think I had to throw them all out as It's taken them forever! But maybe there's hope, as two different crosses came up over night. Both crosses with Gypsy Lord. One as pollen parent, and one as pod parent. Hurray!

Some of my best seedlings were from Gypsy Lord. Are you going to pass out cigars? OOPS I don't smoke.

No cigars Paul, lol, but Gypsy Lord is such a nice one, and very fertile too. Every cross I made with it produced a pod. Both ways!

Number 4 has popped out of the ground! First one to come up that is not a Gypsy Lord baby, but this one is out of a pod from Brazilian Art. I'm glad it grew, I had to make a lot of crosses to get this one to take.
