Caption: Commercial flower seed production: a worker on a farm in the Lompoc Valley, California, gathering pollen from a plant. Lompoc is the world's leading supplier of flower seeds, following the introduction of sweet peas around the turn of the century. Some delicate flowers, such as columbine & lobelia, need to be picked by hand. More robust specimens are handled by a combine harvester, which thrashes the plants to collect the seeds.
