Default Vanilla orchid part 2 attack of the seed pod

Yea! I played a little Barry White and gently pollinated the Vanilla blooms now I have seed pods.
It went from this

to this

to this

Check out my new galley for more pics

The seed pods need 8 months before they can be removed from the plant and cured. Then Vanilla Ice Cream.

That plant's future is cold.

Here's a song, goes a little somtin' like dis:

Ice Cream Baby, Ice Cream Baby
All right stop, behave and listen
Ice is back with an ice cream invention
Something grabs a hold of me tightly
Then I flow like chocolate sauce daily and nightly
Will it ever stop? Yo - I don't know
Raid the freezer now and I'll show
To the extreme I fill a cone like a vandal
Fill it up to the brim, and put a chocolate candle.

Brain freeze rush your head till it booms
I'm killing your brain like Neopolitan mushroom
Deadly, when I play a scoop melody
Anything falling on the floor is a felony
Love it or leave it, You better lick away
You better eat the whole thing, The kid don't play
If there was a run down, Yo, I'll solve it
Check out the scoop while Baskin revolves it

Ice Cream Baby Vanilla, Ice Cream Baby Vanilla
Ice Cream Baby Vanilla, Ice Cream Baby Vanilla

Now that the party is jumping
With the cones lickin' in, the butterscotch pumpin'
Quick to the point, to the point no faking
I'm handin' out freezies as fast as I'm makin'
Melting them if you're not quick and nimble
I go crazy when I hear a blender
And a soft-serve with a souped up tempo
I'm on my last cone and it's time to go solo
Rollin' in my 5. 0
With my ragtop down so the chimes can blow
The girlies on standby, Waving just to say Hi
Did you stop? Hell No - I just drove by
Bringing my goodies to the next stop
I caught a drip and I'm heading to the next block
That block was dead

Yo - so I continued to A1A Beachfront Ave.
Girls were hot wearing less than bikinis
Rockman lovers driving Lamborghinis
Jealous 'cause I'm out eating mine
Baskin with a slush and Vanilla with a lime
I stack the scoops high, they never fall
The chumps acting ill, they're full of "After Eight" ball
Orders rang out for my bell
I grabbed my scoop - let the peanut shells
Fall on the concrete real fast
Jumped in my cart, slammed on the gas
Bumper to bumper the avenue's packed
I'm trying to get away before my ice cream's jacked
Police on the scene, You know what I mean
They passed me up, confronted all the soda fiends
If there was a rundown, Yo, I'll solve it
Check out the scoop while Baskin revolves it

Ice Cream Baby Vanilla, Ice Cream Baby Vanilla
Ice Cream Baby Vanilla, Ice Cream Baby Vanilla

Take heed, 'cause I'm an ice cream poet
Baskin's on the scene just in case you didn't know it
I got the best sundaes and splits around
Enough milkshakes to fill holes in the ground
'Cause my style's like a strawberry spill
Freezeable stuff that you can envision and feel
scooped and formed, This is a hell of a concept
We serve it cold and you want to eat all this
Baskin plays on the scoop, piles it on like a ninja
Stack scoops so fast, Dairy Queens say, "damn"
If ice cream was a drug, I'd sell it by the gram
Keep my composure adding chocolate mousse
Magnetized by the scoop while I add some juice
If there was a run down, Yo - I'll solve it!
Check out the scoop while Baskin revolves it.

Ice Cream Baby Vanilla, Ice Cream Baby Vanilla
Ice Cream Baby Vanilla, Ice CreamBaby Vanilla

Yo man - Let's get out of here! Get change from your mother!

Ice Cream Baby Too cold, Ice Cream Baby Too cold Too cold
Ice Cream Baby Too cold Too cold, Ice Cream Baby Too cold Too cold

(with apologies to rapper Vanilla Ice for messing up his tune)

I now have a new song to sing to the orchids as I cross pollinate. My fav line "If there was a run down, Yo - I'll solve it!
Check out the hook while Baskin revolves it." So now I will have to make a vanilla bean (instead of extract) so I like make
"Ice Cream Baby Vanilla, Ice Cream Baby Vanilla
Ice Cream Baby Vanilla, Ice Cream Baby Vanilla"
