Mysterious Seeds From China
We were watching the news Tuesday and they announced that China may be mailing mysterious seeds to random people in the USA and that the seeds may be invasive. Being an avid gardener I was sure to take notice. Ironically, Wednesday I received one of these random seeds packets in the mail. The bag it came in states it is jewelry, mine said one ring and I did not order this. The authorities ask that if you receive these seeds, DO NOT OPEN OR PLANT THEM. Click the link below to read what USA Today wrote about these mysterious seeds from China and what you should do if you receive them like I did.
These are what my seeds look like, however, they show different seeds in the USA Today article. I have no idea what kind of seeds these are, do you have any idea?
Wow thank you for informing us
You are very welcome!
Please chat me private or email me with firstname.lastname@example.org
You are very welcome!
I would drop those in the bin very quickly! Yikes…
I thought about it but they look like they are starting to sprout. I pictured them in the landfill with Jack in the Bean Stalk story…lol
That is really weird… Thanks for the info! Stay safe!
It sure is and I will. Thank you!
Very scary. I saw this news report just yesterday. Will they tell you what they are eventually?
I doubt it but I still have to call them. I have them in a sealed bag now.
Good when I get rid of them…lol
I live in the comparatively freethinking zone known as northern New Mexico. I would plant them in a heartbeat. The sensible way, of course. In pots. Let’s see what grows, first, before doing something silly to the whole living environment.
You don’t know how bad I want too!
That’s creepy, to say the least
Mystery seeds and sex with demons were not on my Bingo card for July 2020
It sure is! Maybe you had the wrong bingo card….lol
Maybe. But I’d hate to see what the right Bingo card looks like.
I’ve been reading about this too, and am interested to see what they figure out
They probably will never say.
Whats this? Sorry, makes me laughing, but sounds like the story from the Trojan Horse. Maybe China will overtake the US by psychedlic plants. However touching can be harmful too, think on the Ambrosia plant. Be well and stay save. Michael
I think there’s a movie to produce in your future….hahahaha Thanks Michael!
We live in crazy times. Thanks for the post!
You’re very welcome!
Oh my, really? Looks like peas 😬
Not going to find out…lol
This is the oddest thing I have ever heard!
It sure is Laci!
OMG, I heard about this, thought it was fake news. That’s crazy. Don’t touch them! Keep them away from your kitchen! C
I sealed them in a ziploc bag. Then I sanitized the counter even though I didn’t open them.
I can’t believe all the money it cost to mail all of them so there has to be a motive behind it.
Everything in 2020 is weird.
Hi- from the picture they look like lava rocks which you can bead on jewelery and put essential oil on cause they are porous. That’s my only guess. So weird maybe it got sent to the wrong sender. Weird timing.
It sure is weird Laura!
Wow! Thanks for sharing this. My husband, who keeps up with the news and politics much more so than I do, said he had read about it. Frankly, these days, just because it is reported on the Internet doesn’t mean a hill of beans (humor intended). To read about it from the personal experience of a reliable source really makes it hit home.
Hahahaha good one! Yes definitely true!
Oh wow, how weird! They look rather like blueberries, don’t they? I’d be sort of tempted to try and germinate a couple in a pot but… well, probably best not.
No way they said not to even open the bag or plant. But I am curious…lol
I read about this online. Thank you so much for sharing!
You’re very welcome!
Geez, now this is weird or sinister 🙁
It sure is!
Thanks for the post. I didn’t know about this. I feel angry that people do this kind of thing.
It’s a scary world isn’t it?
It can be!
Reblogged this on firefly465 and commented:
Warning. Chinese seed scam?
Thank you for reblogging. Everyone should know about this.
I have seen this several times. Is there someplace to take them, or send them to one of our many agencies to analyze. This seems like something that should be investigated quickly. Why would China send out all these random looking seeds if there was no agenda?
Exactly and the bag said it was jewelry.
Tried on comment on the blog and not sure it went thru. Hope there is one of our numerous govt agencies on top of this! Maybe a spot for all these seeds to go to be analyzed. Seems like some kind of agenda…for fear if nothing else.
Yes there is and I will call to give them mine.
I heard about this on the news as well. It is very strange. Your seeds look different then the ones I saw on the news report which is kind of odd unless they are sending many different invasive species.
I have seen 3 different ones, mine and 2 others on news.
Please take care 🤔🤔
I will thank you Shaheen!
Wow, you actually received one of the mailed boxes from China, Diane!
The way they look thick and round, is very similar to soybeans (to make soybean paste; “miso”, in Japanese).
I’m not going to try it! hahahaha
I didnt know this was happening! how strange is that???
I just heard about it Tuesday for the first time and they came Wednesday!
Be cautious, indeed.
I am and I can’t wait to get them out of here!
These are the seeds of discord. They are disguised though as peas.
Wow! I saw that article yesterday. So weird. Yours look like peas. Glad you were aware of this.
Pretty ironic they came the day after I saw it on tv wasn’t it?
We are getting them here in Canada too.
I didn’t know that Carla. Just think how much money was spent mailing all of them. Doesn’t make sense!
No it does not.
We received an email from our garden supplier telling us to bring them the seeds or to contact our local AG department – do not open. And most definitely, do not plant.
I can’t believe they haven’t told anyone what they are with the ones they have so far. My husband said it’s the government covering it up…🤣😂🤣
You would think they would know by now. I’m with you husband 🤣
Doesn’t matter what they are- don’t plant.
I think those might be soy bean seeds?
I would love to know but I’m not planting them…lol
How bizarre! Let us know when you figure out what it is!
I sealed them and the bag in a ziploc bag. I will contact authorities when I have time.
I wonder why you were selected to be “gifted” Diane? Just when you thought the world could not get any more bizarre!
Probably because I ordered seeds this year. But how in the world did they get that information? Creepy isn’t it Linda!
Very creepy Diana – I don’t like that they sent unsolicited stuff to you. They probably hacked into a catalog site where you ordered your seeds from.
I read that article! I won’t be too surprised if I get seeds since I order a lot online, but I hope I don’t because I will have to report them. Scary but I think it’s a feedback scam.
I will report it. I’m not taking any chances!
😮😮😮 oh my goodness!!! Did you contact that government agency and ask?
That is weird 😮 How spooky
Its awful we have to be cautious like that!
I haven’t yet but I will.
I have been reading about this for a week !! I think this is 2020 Diane !!💕
Yes I am ready for 2021! lol
Me too Diane 💙
Omg I have this on my 2020 what could happen next bingo card….just a tsunami away from full card…
Let us know what you find out when you contact the authorities. I suspect they will either dispose of them or tell you how to. Diane this is so weird! I am glad you let us in on it.
From what a follower said I might be advised to mail them to authorities. Yes, very weird Lena!
Oh my gosh I heard about this on the news right before you posted this! How crazy that you received a package!
I think it might be because we ordered seeds for the garden this year. Creepy they could get that information though.
In my newspaper today, they said, not to open or even throw away…call your state Dept. of Agriculture. They will instruct you what to do with them. They say put that bag of seeds into a ziplock type back before mailing out. Also, DO NOT OPEN or toss in your garbage bin. God only knows what will grow in our landfills. This could be a threat to us too.
Please heed and do this correctly.
Yes zip locked the day I got them. Will be calling next week. Crazy world we love in isn’t it!
Wow – thank you for informing us 🙂
Your very welcome!
Oh, wow! Thank you for this notice, Diane!
You’re welcome Mitzy!
I wonder how many people opened them without thinking about where they came from. Scary. Thank you for sharing.
To be honest, I really, really want to receive a packet in the mail but let’s hope that I don’t because I’m not sure I could resist planting them to see what happens.
I saw a website posted that they were normal vegetable and flower seeds but that some had a purple substance on them. Authorities still think something is up with them that they will be invasive to our native plants.
Thank you so much for sharing this info, I wasn’t aware of it.🥰👣
I had no idea this was happening! We don’t watch the news, so I guess that explains it lol!
But oh my, that must have been freaky! Honestly, in my opinion, its freakier that they found your address and info without you ordering it, just makes you think what else they know!
Thank you for sharing this Diane, and good luck <3
Exactly!!!! Creepy indeed.
