Introduction: Seedbag

Picture of Seedbag

Make the trail your dog walks visible with this tool. By giving your dog a seedbag to wear it will spread seeds while walking around. In time a grown path of plants will be shown.

Step 1: Making the Seedbag

Picture of Making the Seedbag

To maak the seedbag you first need an aluminium pipe, two plastic caps and a dog collar. You can remove the caps to fill the seedbag with seeds.

Step 2: Aluminium Pipe

Picture of Aluminium Pipe

You have to make holes in the aluminium pipe for the seeds to fall through. The size of the seeds you want to use are defining the size of the holes in your seedbag. I used a 2.5mm bore to spread small seeds.
Make two rows of at least five holes, that way you make sure the seeds are able to fall trough.

Step 3: The Caps

You have to make holes in the caps for the collar to slide through. Make sure the bore you use is the same size as the collar.

Step 4: In Use

Picture of In Use

If you put all the things together you can start using the seedbag. In generall you can use all kinds of seeds in your seedbag, but it depends on the weather circumstances and the condition of the soil whether the seeds will grow or not. It is also possible to use plants with a medicinal value.
Some plants you could use:
-chamomilla recutita (mayweed)
-rumes acetosa (dock)
-borago officiinalis

I wonder what natural herbs we can shove in there to turn it into a flea collar or something

Hey! Indeed a nice idea! I have thought of some other ways of use for it: - For indoors, you could place seeds in the bag which smell nice. This way you won't be bothered by the possible bad smell of your dog anymore. Make sure the holes are not to big, because the seeds should stay in for this function! - You could turn the idea around. Instead of spreading seeds on the wasteland, you could let your dog collect seeds or other small parts of nature. This way you get a nice collage which changes every season. - You could change the construction. Make it from two tubes instead of one that fit eachother. By rotation the outside tube you can change the size of the holes and close and open the seedback. This comment is places by phekkenberg
