Chop Wood Carry Water Plant Seeds is a blog about Self-Sufficient Homesteading. How can we live by creating a sustainable bio-diverse world, instead of by consuming and destroying the only one we have? What kind of teaching have you got if you exclude nature?
While walking my dog I passed a few Maple tress. I looked around the tree for seeds and found that many have germinated :) happy days! I collected a few and brought them home with me. My plan is to plant many bee friendly trees and bushes on our new farm (which we will buy this year). Maple is a great source of early pollen.
naturally sprouted Maple seeds
I just placed the seeds on top of the soil (which I first saturated in water). This is how I found them in nature.
Placed some leaf mulch on top of the seeds to keep the soil moist.
