While the plants that were not vernalised and awaited spring in the cold glasshouse are flowering just now, the plants that were vernalised and kept in the controlled environment (long day, 16 hours and higher temperatures >15°C) are ready to be harvested.

I’ve been spending lots of my time currently by removing and gently cleaning the seeds. It is great to experience this long effort to be bear fruit (literally :)) and I’m excited about the future experiments I’m planning.
