I loved it! You pack a lot of examples into a short video. Your camera-man or camera-woman is excellent.

I'm going to look for a "tapas dish" to replace some of my funnels.

Maybe a "corn-on-the-cob" dish would work.

Right now, I have many "funnels" that I made by rolling stiff paper into cones (large, small, narrow or wide). I use heavy card stock, covers of magazines and cards received as junk mail. Usually the funnels only need to fit into an open 2"x3" Ziploc, but sometimes I need to funnels seeds into a measuring cylinder sold for measuring children's' liquid medicine. The tip of THAT funnel had to be quite small.

The "children's medicine measuring tube" only holds around 2 teaspoons, so I marked up a liquor glass for measuring larger packets or seed harvests.

Other than a 1/64th teaspoon, stainless steel measuring spoon, these are my best effort so far to create a teeny-tiny seed scoop. I cut off an inch or two of soda straw, and cut one end to a sharp angle. Then I slit the inch or two lengthwise. Then I wrap it tightly around a skewer, chopstick or very small dowel, then Scotch-tape the plastic straw to the wooden dowel. Sometimes I tape the straw firmly to the stick, and sometimes I leave it able to slid against friction, so I can set the "scoop" size to be small, tiny, or infinitesimal.

Thank you for the positive comments.
Please feel free to share the video, the more people collect seeds, the better

Rick, my camera man is my son in law. Not only about his camera skils, he is the son in law every mother wants for her daughter. Hurray!
