Well, it's been a long winter and I'm anxiously awaiting Spring's arrival. I know it's coming soon, it has to be, right....? *as the wind howls out my window*
In anticipation of warmer sunny days I share with you these photos of my buckwheat sprouts. Soon to be harvested and enjoyed thoroughly in sandwiches and atop a salad. These are by far my favorite sprouts and they are so easy to grow and quick to harvest-about 4 days.
Soak the whole
buckwheat seeds (organic preferred) overnight. Drain and lay on top of a
2" layer of moist potting soil. I reuse the plastic tomato or
strawberry containers from the market. Set next to window and watch
them grow. Keep sprouts moist by using a spray bottle of water.
by the way, I plan on posting at least once a week from now on. I will
try my best to hold to that. Like I said, it's been a long winter.
