Gift bags in the Meadow update

I'm happy to report that the organza gift bags that I tied around the antelope-horn seedpods at the end of May worked! They kept the milkbugs out and the seeds from dispersing when the pods popped open. So I've been able to harvest a hefty amount of seeds. I'm also reusing the bags and putting them around pearl milkweed seedpods.
Some milkbugs got into this bag, but I untied the bag and removed them. I bet they hatched inside the bag.
