Flashback Friday

Today’s flashback is to “Dirt Balls”.  Dirt Balls are made by mixing seeds with clay and compost and then rolling the mixture into balls.  This is an ancient technique used to plant without tilling.  It has also been used to seed bomb empty lots in cities.

Dirt  Balls are a great way to share your seeds.  Take a look at Dirt Balls.

    I never heard of dirt ball until I read your posts, but they look like fun to make and plant. I have lots of marigold seeds. I may have to try putting some of them into dirt balls.
