Hey there, green thumbs and wildlife enthusiasts. Are you ready to add some color to your world and bring back the bees? Then let's get ready to make some seed bombs!
First, let's gather our ingredients:
- 7 lbs of natural clay (about 1/2 a cup)
- 1 1/2 cups of soil
- 1/4 cup of water
- Three packs of pollinator seeds
Now, mix the clay, soil, water, and seeds together in a large bowl. You want to get your hands dirty and really squish it all together. You want it to be moist, but not too wet, about the consistency of cookie dough.
Next comes the fun part - roll the mixture into balls about the size of golf balls. You can also get creative and make them into different shapes if you're feeling adventurous. Maybe you want to make some star-shaped seed bombs for an out-of-this-world garden!
After you're done shaping your seed bombs, let them dry on a wire rack or cookie sheet. Allowing them to dry out completely is important so they hold together when you throw them around.
Now, it's time to spread the love and toss them around your community. You can throw them in your backyard, a public park, or even on the side of the road (with permission, of course). If you want to make extra sure they sprout, dig a small hole and toss them in there. The rain will wash away the clay and watch as they grow into beautiful plants that will support our precious pollinators.
So let's make some seed bombs this spring and show some love to our bee friends. Get dirty, have fun, and bring some color back to our world!
