|Seed balls drying|
A bit of research resulted in learning that seed balls are used in third-world countries as a way of planting crops. Masanobu Fukuoka has developed the seed balls as almost fool-proof way of planting vegetables and wheat. See a video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_5eoUojVpI
|Seed balls in boxes ready to give away|
When the seed balls were dry, I packaged them in little boxes and give them away as gifts to native plant buffs. I've also placed some seed balls in my own garden and will watch for their development in the spring. The squirrels move them around a bit but, perhaps because of the chili, don't damage them.
