Mystery Seed of the Week 195: Challenge 4

As a run up to our 200th Mystery Seed, we are doing few new challenges as a contest.  The idea of the challenges will be to introduce some real world reasons why someone might need to identify seeds. Prizes will be award in post 200.

Challenge 4.

Scenario:  Oh no, two packets of garden seeds spilled on the floor. The only problem is that you are not sure which two, because many of the packages were open.

Can you tell what kinds of seeds spilled?  (Hint: some of the items may be debris on the floor.)

Edit:  For this week's challenge, 5 points for the first identification of each of the two types of seeds, 1 point for each subsequent correct answer. Please use the same name for all the challenges so I can keep track of your points. Good luck!

Challenge 4 is now closed.

Only 4 more challenges to go.

  1. The spiky seed reminds me of something in the parsley family. I'm guessing dill. The other is harder, but I'm going to guess spinach. Anyways the combo would make a nice salad!
