today is seed bomb day for me :)
seed bombs are little ball of seed and dirt/clay lumped together till they hold shape.
they are the idea tool for the planter on the move, someone planting where they have low access, or someone planting when you don't know when its actually going to rain!
the lump of dirt is like a mini planter that both holds the seeds in place (even if tossed on the ground, like in an abandoned dirt lot... :) and also protects the seeds from unpleasant seed situations, like being eaten or burnt. when water does come, the balls soak up and hold that water longer than normal soil.
you can put any kind of seed in seed bombs, but i prefer food seeds.
so today we will make a bunch of these little guys and then just... wander around looking for empty spaces, wasted spaces....
then, when the time comes and our sneaky 'weeds' are all grown, we will harvest them and donate to the food bank and the farmers markets :)
filling up the empty places... with food!
this will be one of the things in my video blog about gardening. stay tuned!
