I was at Rebecca's Natural Food store in Charlottesville and decided to treat myself. I got some screen lids for sprout starting and a bag of Alfalfa seeds and Mung Bean seeds. I love sprouts on salads and things and also like to make asian noodle soups so I thought this would be fun to try out. It also satiates that "gardening" fix I miss during the winter. There is something satisfying in sprouting a plant from seed and watching it thrive.
I started the Alfalfa sprouts this morning. Maybe by next Sunday I'll be enjoying a hummus and sprout sandwich!
