Sprouting to Life: Day One
Basil, rosemary and mint all failed in my infertile apartment. But I’ve finally discovered something that will grow! I bought some salad sprout seeds from the bulk bin at the Takoma Park Co-op and it actually worked. In less than two weeks I found (well, worked for) a jar full of sprouts.
This is my second go-round because it’s just so darn easy and I love having one extra thing to add to my salads and sandwiches.
All you do is put the seeds in a jar, just enough to cover the bottom. Place something permeable over the top (I used old tights) and rinse the seeds. Add enough water to let the seeds swish around then dump the water out, through the tights. Place the jar back on the counter. Repeat daily.
In fact, my sprouts don’t even see any real sunlight, but they grow nonetheless. I’ll be updating with my sprout progress. And please let me know if there’s anything similarly easy to grow indoors.
