And then I started wondering about genetics. You see, if you keep the ewe lambs all born from the same ram, and only change your ram every few years, eventually your gene pool shrinks and you start getting unthriftiness. The solution is to cross in from an outside line.
So with my wee marties, if I only save the seeds from one tomato, will I not be shrinking my gene pool? And given that all the plants I grew are from the same lot of seeds, how do I keep my gene pool big enough? Will my next year's plants be sad little inbred things that produce grape-sized tomatoes?
Enquiring minds want to know!
Also, you should watch this:
It's a lot more in line with the style of adagio I'd like to do. That move at 1:12? We did it. Not that gracefully, but I didn't drop him on his head. We have a fairly low bar for success. *ahem*
