Re: Seed "Bombs"
I would try to come up with something other than a balloon as a carrier

The best I could think of is a corn husk minus the corn and filled with
water and seeds. A large eggroll wrapper might work (homemade so as
not to use any salt). But the ideal would be if you could sprinkle the seeds
on the lot during a gentle rain or just after one. If you don't have easy
to the lot, it's possible to fling handfuls of dry seeds quite a distance
wet ground. Or do you know if anyone makes a backpack version of the
machine that sprays grass seed and fertilizer on steep banks?
