After gathering seeds from the flowers in the Sunny Meadow-to-be, I decided to try making seed balls.
I estimate 200+ seed balls from 1/3 C seeds. It was more work than I anticipated since it took longer than I thought for the soil/clay particles to become elastic and form into balls. It required more moisture than I thought too. I hope the seeds don't try to germinate before the clay dries. We're having a really windy day today, so hopefully the airflow will help dry them faster. (I've moved the wire riddle insert to a couple of bricks supporting the edges for better air circulation).
I added radish, daikon, corn, bean, adzuki, soybean, squash, pumpkin, dill, basil, aka (red) Shiso, and sunflower seeds for edible additions, and some apple seeds for extra surprise although the wildflowers are mostly for sunny dry areas. Do you think there are 100 seeds in each ball? The bigger seeds needed bigger balls, but I made some much smaller balls for the smaller seeds. We'll see.
I have at least another 1/3 C, maybe even 2/3 C of seeds, so I gues I'll be rolling more seed balls.
Oh! I also added sprouting wheat seeds and brown rice for kicks, though I don't know if the brown rice will sprout (I've heard of people sprouting brown rice though, so maybe?)
