It is sunny here this morning ... and even though it is a bit chilly the birds are still on their non-stop "who is the best singer in the neighborhood" contest.
Don't get me wrong .. it is so nice to hear ... wish I could hear Spring Peepers even more so though !
OK .. so growing your own sprouts came up from my bone broth post, so I thought I would do a post on how darn easy it is.
I bought a three tray sprouter from Veseys quite a few years ago .. went nuts growing sprouts then took a break for a few years and now back at it.
This kit has been replaced by the company with a four tray one that is supposed to be easier but this older one works fine.
So ... I usually wet the bottom of each tray just to get a grabbing surface for the first lay out of seeds.
I sprinkle the seeds with a tablespoon so I can control how much goes in the tray.
When they are ready to "harvest" I store them with some paper towel in a zip lock bag in the fridge.
This is after three days.
So what else have I been doing to get into trouble ?
A day of errands to run and grocery shopping, meant I couldn't resist a couple of "plant like objects"?
These were Garden PA's pick ... I grew them many years ago in Nova Scotia and I think they stuck in his brain some how .. to me they are annuals because I don't really want to lift and store bulbs.
They are pretty ... but I have no idea where I am going to put them.
I don't have these ... is that a good excuse ?
Even though they are older cultivars, they are pretty, and have their advantages, and ?? I don't discriminate against older versions, since I am becoming one myself ?
Look at that picture in the circle, how can you not want THAT !!
The line was " our last twirly thing did NOT twirl .. it stood there ... and did next to nothing"
Which I was fine with, but he was not, so here we go again ?
The plants .. Acidanthera aka Peacock Orchids
Clematis Bees Jubilee
I have made another on line order ... this time to Hortico ... just an inquiry for now but I will post on it later when it is a done deal ... just a small one .. to fill in some gaps I think I have ?
