I wish I had taken a picture of it. I will put another picture of a seed on here, to show the shape. This year I found for the second time, a silvery metallic looking seed? It looks like a seed. This year I found it in the ground by my potatoes. A couple of years ago I found one inside a Walnut husk. It looks just like a seed, but I can't remember what seed I've seen that looks like this. It looks like the seeds in this picture, but silvery and looks reflective.

Hi Mike,

Sorry but I think we will have to wait for the real deal. Smiling

Wild guess, but did they look like this (although I think too big to fit inside a walnut husk):

They look sort of like that, but only one seed in the middle, and colored more like mylar on a cd. I'm pretty sure it couldn't be a seed though, because how would it get inside the walnut husk?

I thought of Lunaria biennis but as Mike stated, how would they get inside a walnut husk?
