So I had my little package of seeds sitting out as I was listing out what I had ordered. Sometimes I just can't remember. Anyway, I was cooking dinner when daughter walks in and hands me a packet of seeds she had been happily munching on. It's lemonbalm. First off, will it hurt her. Second off, can they be saved?

What's "food amounts?"

I've never made a salad out of it. I do munch it pretty regularly. I've seen ducks mow down and perfectly prune this stuff. Pretty healthy looking duck.

She seems fine. I don't know if she ingested any really. But there are a ton of slobbery seeds in there. Think they're dead now?

Not dead, just ready to plant I don't think I would try to dry them back out, just poke them in some soil.
 
Don't count your weasels before they've popped. And now for a mulberry bush related tiny ad:
