That's why I recommend that when conditions are good for daubing, go 
ahead and take advantage of it.  The excess seeds can be dried and 
saved for planting later after a year when things go wrong and you 
don't get pods.  I have seeds stored in the freezer.  A lot of seeds 
actually.  I find they germinate as well as those planted the first 
season.  I generally get one or two every year and plant anyway just 
because they are older.  But I've been accumulating for several 
years now, so there will still be more than I can plant.

I just don't know where to start the cleanup.  Just a little raking 
gave me some really large piles of green oak leaves and twigs and 
small limbs.  It's going to take a while.
