Bonsall’s office is no climate-controlled vault,



I thought maybe storing seeds in an aquarium, in which a candle is periodically burns up the oxygen, would help preserve cow peas for instance from their borers.

Will Bonsall is pretty cool. I read his book, got to the end, emailed him and he emailed right back.

Half an acre for the scatterseed project. Hmm. Wonder how he does isolation.
