and Dung balls!
Not really, but just like it.
With out the poo.
I'll get to that in a moment, because it is very cool.
Like cool enough that you will want to do it.
So the party,
a bag full
So I have to tell you before I move on to dung balls, that the home made telescope that works really well, led us into a discussion that the Yale telescopes/observatory that is located in my town, were open that night for a public showing. It is literally 4 streets down from us. After a quick bath and dinner, we waited till the stars came out and headed over. We saw Saturn! For real! It looked like a glow in the dark one that you hang in your room. We saw it's rings, it's moon. It was SO, so cool!
We'll be doing that again!
Ok, so the dung balls. They only look like dung balls. But they are are actually seed bombs.
First you take powdered clay
then potting medium
like a 50/50 mix
Then add a bunch of wild flower seeds.
spray with water while mixing
mix the moisture around but do not saturate.
If it's made too wet, the seeds will start to germinate.
Then roll into little dung balls
and set out to dry.
Now you can chuck these bombs into an empty lot, or anywhere else you deem in need of pretty wild flowers.
The birds and bees will adore you.
Note: you may confuse the crap out of a beetle.
