    1. It really is! I'm about to go collect seeds for seed bombs! :D Posted 5 months ago
      1. Say what now? Posted 5 months ago
        1. Seed bombing is where you make a mix of seeds and form into a ball (with clay or something similar usually). You can then throw them in random places (or specific I suppose) for germination!

          My hubby and I will be rehabbing the disturbed areas of our land with native seeds, so this will probably be one of our methods.

          1. That's so cool! If I may ask, purely from a naturalist interest, how big is your land?
            No worries if you don't want to share that.

            1. 22.5 acres or 9.1 hectares at this point. We'd like to purchase more of the forested land around us in time. :) Fortunately, we are surrounded by a lot of it! Posted 5 months ago
              1. Nice, that's quite big! I know you'd be a good steward of it. Posted 5 months ago
                1. Thanks, Ferdy! We are going to try our best!

                  We wish we had the money to protect more of the land around us!

          2. I love guerrilla gardening :). Some people do it to their neighbor’s yards... *hint hint* Posted 5 months ago
            1. I totally need to do that before we move! Posted 5 months ago
            2. Would ripping out all of their invasive, nonnatives be a crime? :D Posted 5 months ago
              1. bahahaha! I'll come help ;). Take away their herbicides/insecticides too... Posted 5 months ago
                1. Sounds like a plan! ;) They need their lawnmower privileges taken away too. They mow 2-4 times a week! Posted 5 months ago
                  1. :-O Posted 5 months ago
