One year I removed some dry, prickly Leonotis nepetifolia seed pods – with my bare hands. Ouch!
Having learned from my mistake, the following year I harvested the prickly seed pods and attempted to remove the seeds while wearing gloves. Alas, I was not destined to be a brain surgeon and was all thumbs. I needed a better idea.
Rather than tell you my idea, let me show you in pictures. Follow along.
Plastic (not glass!) container and a few small, heavy items. Mix well and shake.
Seems that my camera has an ‘Anti-Shake’ mode, so no photo. Here, how’s this?
