    Thanks blueblood.

    Gypsi: Love this idea of the mudbombs. Tee Hee! Be sure to throw in some milkweed while you are at it. How do you make those?

    Will be a first year, and waiting for the milkweed on the backroad to go to seed. Clay, (wet and maleable, can be potters clay but local is preferred, mine is yellow. Red is better), compost, seeds. Seeds go in compost in middle, clay formed around outside, let dry somewhat, toss before rain.
