When I eat annything that has seeds... (Peppers cherry and grapes...aples etc.) I save the seeds and throw them on ditch banks and any where they might grow. I have been known to buy poppy seeds in the bulk food section of the groceries store and take them fishing... It makes me smile. This year I found a plum tree in town that had dropped hundreds of seeds. I gathered a grocery bag and walked bown a dry ditch and planted 2-4 in a hole for several hundred yards.lol... It will water them for years and provide a ton of food for the birds and such. Again this makes me smile. When ever I have a bad day I try to do good deeds... At least I think they are good deeds.
The poppy GROW... pepers grow... Cherry is raw apples are raw.... I have seen Manny grow where I drive regularly.... If only 1 seed in a hundred makes then I have made a difference becuse I have done this for years... Lol...it makes me smile... Kinda a lifelong hobbies... Started with the poppys when I was in grade school... Down ait the river near jackpot Nevada. If I eat a carrot I try to stick the top in moist soil...of course sometimes I forget and end up with well washed carrot or cherry seeds in the washer...lol did not impress my ex 😆

So good to know. Up North of Wisconsin, by the Uppers, there are woods with lots and lots of appletrees. They are at least all good for cider and applejack.
Whether they were planted by humans or by birds, they have preserved genetic diversity and we are all richer for it. Sure, some of the seeds will not grow, and some of them have fruit that are not fit for human consumption but birds deer and other creatures will get nourishment from them, so it is still a win-win-win practice.
