Mendel did the same thing again with his new peas.
He planted them and waited for the flowers to form.

He then self-pollinated the flowers
and waited to see what sort of peas he would get this time.

The new green peas always made plants that made more green peas.
Some of the yellow peas always made plants that made more yellow peas.
The rest of the yellow peas sometimes made for more yellow peas
and sometimes they made for green peas.

He wondered what was going on.

Then he thought of a wonderful idea to explain it...
