Now I came back six hours later. If you keep a close eye on it, I think you will be able to tell when you need to come back.
We once again came back here with the seeds that have been processed along with the bowl and sieve as before as well as the sample seeds and the paper towel. Again, process your seeds through the sieve so that you can separate them out and by now you already know whether or not this is going the way that you hope that it would. And I am already quite pleased with what I am seeing, but let’s go ahead and pour these out over on the paper towel and see what you think.
You can see down here at the bottom where the three original seeds are quite smaller than the rest of the seeds up here. These have all had their hard coat warn out and have bulked up. All but one, which probably just was not a very well fertilized in the first place.
Now I’m just going to put them into these seven peat pots with some potting soil mix and give them all a nice saturation of water so that they know that I’m ready for them to germinate.
So what all does that save me in the long run? I went from looking at anywhere from $20-30 per tree to the little bit of material that I used in some pre-purchased potting soil and the little peat pots. That’s it. I’m going to have at least 7 trees. Seven is what I want to have on the property, and so doing the rough math $140 is a lot of money saved that I’m happy to put somewhere else.
So if you’re already part of the giveaway, you can look forward to getting some black locust seed. I know that not everybody who’s signed up may even be able to grow black locust such as somebody in an apartment or a small suburban lot with homeowner restrictions, but if you are able, then I have to encourage you to do it for the many different varieties, and aspects and uses of this tree.
If you like this, then please go ahead and share our site with your friends in different communities so that they can see there are some seeds that have some special thing that needs to be done before they can actually germinate, or that there are some plants out there that have so many different uses that they might not be taking it into consideration.
Thank you all so much.
We’ll see you next time.
