Garden Tuesday - seed bombs
I'm joining in with Pam's Garden Tuesday for the first time today. Instead of a photo of something from my yard or garden, I'm going to share something I just stumbled upon this morning: seed bombs or seed balls. You may already know about these but this is a discovery for me. While seed bombs are utilized as an inexpensive and fun tool of guerilla gardening, I'm going to make some and use them on our property which is a wooded acre in the Sierra Nevada foothills.
Maybe next week I'll follow up with photos of our seed bomb making but for now here are some articles, etc. explaining the concept and simple instructions for making your own little balls of wildflower happiness.
