Pollinating peach flowers

We have been pollinating every day between 1pm and 2pm as that is the warmest part of the day. We use a rabbits tail tied to a cane. The fur of the tail collects pollen in the same way an insect would and then as you go from flower to flower the pollen gets deposited on the next flower. Looking forward to seeing the results!
