Sprouts, sprouts and more sprouts!

Well, I think that our experiment has yielded important results - for the purposes of instant (or nearly so) gratification, sprouts are the way to go! Our radish seeds sprouted in about a day, and three days later look like this:

Apparently you can't eat sprouts unless the seeds are treated as a food crop as opposed to a seed crop which may be treated chemically to prevent molding during storage, so we haven't tried them to see how they taste. But now that we know how easy it is to do, we have our order in for some edible sprouting seeds!

In the meantime, we are trying to sprout lentils, which would be pretty cool since the seeds would be so much easier for the kids to handle - and for the moms to clean up afterwards. We shall see...
