Season 3, I imagine that the seeds are in their infancy and are already mature…maybe the pollen is still in there.
I don’t personally know how long they need to be in seed to be mature (I’m guessing 3-4 months) so the seeds probably only need to be in their pods for approximately 2 weeks.
If the seeds germinate in the air and aren’t sown within a week on the second day, it still might be possible to transplant the pod into the soil in the garden. In this case they’ll need to be sown within a few weeks to establish well.
I don’t think that it is important to maintain all year at once (or even every morning), as the seeds can survive on a little moisture during the day and still continue growing in the soil without any further attention and in the best case situation, will be ready to germinate 2-3 months after the first spring frosts.
Hope this helps!

Question about how to make fresh saffron tea, what is the best teapot, how to cut and soak the leaves?
So, first off, I’d love to read about your favorite tea. I can see how it’s like having different teas that you brew and enjoy over the course of a year or more. Here are my favorites:
First, I’d love to hear how much tea you can brew (I brew 3-8 ounces each day). Can you boil water to reduce the water content (as in tea made with milk)? Is it better to soak the saffron for a day or longer, or just soak it in the water for a few minutes? For me, I get more interest in fresh saffron in the form of a tea that’s very smooth and has very little tea leaves with the
