A delicious truffle with undertones of dirt, clay and seeds. Nom nom!
Every day on my walk to work I pass over Interstate 94. When I’m not busy wishing I had worn more comfortable shoes, I’m looking at the scrubby, weedy embankments that line the highway and thinking how damn unattractive they are. If I was stuck in traffic for half an hour everyday, I’d like to look at something other than Christmas tree skeletons and a rusted out bumper.Luckily, seed bombs exist! They are the perfect way to secretly, sneakily beautify all those empty lots and highway embankments that are part of the urban landscape. And they’re crazy easy to make!
I followed the directions that I found here. Alls you need is dirt, some hardy, native seeds and some air-dry clay (which is available in the craft aisle of any big discount or craft store). If you’ve ever made dumplings, raviolis or truffles, you’ll be a seed bomb master. And if not? No worries! It’s a pretty low learning curve.
Now that I’ve got twenty five of these little beauties drying on my kitchen table, I can’t stop thinking of all the places that I’m going to throw them. The vacant lot near my school! Into the yard of that abandoned house! Through your open window and into your soup!
