You may remember my recent experiment making "seed bombs for bees," dried balls of soil and clay into which bee friendly seeds were embedded. The idea was to toss these out into gardens to grow and provide food for pollinators. I put most of them into Piopio's Community Fruit & Veg Stand, but also decided to test them out here at Struan Farm.
Well guess what? It's rained and the seeds are growing. I tossed them out in our roadside edge, near the slip a few years ago where I'm trying to encourage plants for Monarch butterflies as well.
Apologies that it's not easy to see teeny tiny plants growing in the dirt, but they're there!
