    Matching these seeds with the sleeve seems like a great idea. But, my only question is if one excludes the 5 key seeds from the message, then you have an odd number of seeds left.

    Just an observation...

    Cheers,

    There's no reason to exclude the key seeds from the message.

    Quite true, Jep. Just a thought...

    Or you could exclude the 'key' seeds and the 1st seed coming out of the dandelion as you can only see half of it anyway. Then you have an even number of seeds again!

    I've got it! I've got it!

    I just decoded 'krap feces sp!'

    That's Krap -with a 'K' - not to be confused with the 'C'rap state park.

    I think this is my sign that I'm up a creek.....

    Or when not using the key seeds, drop the use of the "shadow seed". It is the twentieth seed when counting clockwise. My book shows an outline offset slightly.

    Default Seeds on 5x5

    It appears that Dailyk's friend cavefish has figured out a solution using the seeds which fits the other token puzzles.

    Its on the "my friend is looking..." string.

    He says he used the seeds, used the grid, and came up with a location that did not need to be anagramed.

    Has anyone else tried a dot-to-dot drawing on the seeds? Something like the other drawings in the book?

    Thanks for collecting info! Great to see in one place!

    Do you think this is any different than the extra acorns, leaves, grass, etc. throughout the book? MS seems to put extras in so we have to guess which are the real clues.
