Fruit sex and the BIG questions.
Big questions like.........
Will the male kiwi vine blossom in time to fertilise the female kiwi vines?
Is my golden kiwi fruit seedling a boy or a girl?
Do I need to buy an earlier male?
Will Kosui the Nashi catch up in time to have nashi sex with with Hosui who is already in full flower?
Will Kevin Goldmine, the new nectarine tree, self pollinate this year?
What kind of pollinator should I buy my greengage plum next winter?
And in other news, there are 8 eggs in the incubator which should be hatching out tonight or tomorrow. The sooner would be better, as I have another 59 eggs sitting here ready to go in as soon as the others are out.
yep, thats right - 59.
Thats 1 dozen Indian Game Bantams (WOOHOO - walking roasts!) and 1 dozen salmon faverolles.
And for other folks (I seem to have suddenly become a hatching service) 2 dozen Pekin Bantams and 11 (oops) black Indian runner eggs.
My only concern is that I will get then all mixed up and won't be able to tell them apart! (except the ducks that is...)
