I never got around to planting those seeds from the mystery tree. I meant to. I looked at the little zip lock baggie almost every day, intending to file the hard shells and plant the seeds near the fence out back. But I never quite got around to it. Then one day I noticed there was a bug inside the baggie with the seeds. Icky. How did he get in there? Well, at least he appeared to be dead. Weird!
Now, several weeks later, there are two bugs in the baggie. And they are alive. And they have bored perfectly round holes in the seeds. How strange is that? I think the whole bag is going in the trash now. Seeds I like - Bugs I don't!
