Have I mentioned I'm not a science person? Or even really a gardening person?
I'm more of a learn-as-I-go type person. And today, I learned about boy flowers and girl flowers.
Yes, most of you covered this in middle school science classes, but I have blocked anything relating to chemistry, physics, or biology completely out of my mind.
I needed that memory space for things far more important than the difference between boy and girl flowers.... things like who Jennifer Aniston is dating now. And what Angelina and Brad named their twins. You know, the important stuff.
But when it comes to that Handyman, I make room for all kinds of random information. Mostly because he insists on talking to me as though I understand what he's actually saying.
Radioactive ions and knapweed. Hubbel and neutral theory. The effective application of latin squares when devising an experimental plot layout. Alleopathy... Endophytes...Augh! I can feel my brain on the brink of explosion. Wait, was it Jessica Simpson that had a nose job or her sister?
Oh no! The important stuff is getting blurry and fading...
And now in my brain I have two images that did not come out of People or US magazines. Above: boy flower. Below: girl flower.
That's it for Hand-Pollinating 101.
