What a bummer!  Of course, I understand completely.  I noticed when I 
harvested the seeds that some had small holes which I guessed were insect 
damage.  However I did not expect that viable eggs were contained 
inside.  I *think* I can identify which ones are safe, but I'm not going to 
risk it for the BX.  I guess this is one of the difficulties in doing 
things organically.

Thanks, Dell.
