Hello all,

I'm new here, and just came across this interesting Kickstarter campaign, and backed it, because I feel it that if it is created, it could really help a lot of us out in our gardening endeavors (I personally haven't come across any good method for drying and storing seeds, and love to support innovative ideas like this, but that's just me). It also doesn't hurt that there's a discount because the campaign was just launched about a week ago. I figured I'd share it with you all: https://mindblower.com/products/the-seed-pod/

Thoughts?

My thoughts mmmm
It seems an answer to a problem I don't have . Does anyone else have the inability to dry seeds ? Do people need to spend money on a special container to dry seeds ?
I use toilet paper it's quite cheap recyleable and I can lable it easy
If you want to learn to dry seeds or save them may I suggest the Real Seed co they have lots of info on their  web site that does not require a plastic box in the colour of your choosing

Yes, mmmm indeed!...

I personally think that I do not want any more plastic in my life.  Plastic aside, they look like cute little pods but maybe not very practical for larger amount of seeds or larger seeds.  There is no indication of size but they seem rather small on the picture. Maybe, but just maybe, someone might offer it to a child as a means to learn how to save seeds. For me though, with the amount of seeds I collect every year, I would have to spend an absolute fortune and then find a storage place for all those pods.  Like David, I do not have a problem drying my seeds, and like him I use absorbent paper, easy to label.  People have saved and dried their seeds for centuries without gadgets and my thoughts on the product is that it looks very  gimmicky and like many gimmicky things,  will end up in a landfill.  Only my thoughts though.

This product seems gimmicky.  Been using recycled supplement (pill) bottles and recycled envelopes to save seeds for decades.  Both work great.
