We all know that good seeds are sometimes hard to find, right? Imagine if a large quantity of usable seeds just rained down on your house. That would certainly seem to be strange, don't you think? Well, here is the story from the folks over at Listverse!
Rain of Seeds
Roland Moody of Southampton, England, was startled to hear small, solid objects hitting the glass roof of the conservatory attached to his house. The objects turned out to be hundreds of seeds—small mustard seeds and cress seeds coated in a jelly-like substance. More seeds continued to fall during the day, eventually covering his garden. One of his neighbors, Mrs. Stockley, told Moody she’d had a similar experience the previous year.
The following day, Moody’s home was struck by corn, pea, and bean seeds that seemed to simply fall out of the sky. His neighbors on both sides were also pelted with peas and beans. Only those three houses in the neighborhood were targeted for the bizarre showers of seeds, and a police investigation was unable to pinpoint a source.
The phenomena gradually decreased and went away. By that time, Moody and his neighbors had endured twenty-five separate barrages and collected ten pounds of beans from their gardens. Moody himself gathered eight buckets of cress seeds. He claimed the produce grown from the seeds was good quality. Both Moody and Stockley were interviewed for Arthur C. Clarke’s Mysterious World television series in 1980. To date, no adequate explanation for the weird showers has been found.
Now you have to admit that all this is rather strange. I'm not sure if I would want to eat anything that grew from those mysterious seeds, but it couldn't be much worse than some of the trash being sold in a few of the big name stores, could it?
Coffee out on the patio this morning. Keep an eye out for falling seeds, OK?
