Anyone have seed bug stories?
Last summer I saw a lot of butterfly weed and columbine maturing and stopped and asked if I could collect some seeds. I was told to help myself, as the beds would be cleaned up later and things would be composted.
I had some new papers in my vehicle and grabbed lots and lots of the seeds (thinking trading/sharing here) and just left them lay (seeds and pods) on the papers. I pulled away, and then saw there were bugs crawling all over the place in the passenger seat.
I just hoped (and prayed a bit) that they would stay on the paper, or just anyplace away from me.
Another time, I was surfin the net and kept hearing something...something that sounded like a mouse. Upon immediate investigation, I found there were bugs in the Hardy Hibiscus seeds. They got pitched.
Where have you found bugs?
Oh...and a question. I harvested some hardy hibiscus last fall. I came home and put them in the freezer. If I remove them now, will they likely stay bug free?
