This is such a welcome sight first thing in the morning! Sunshine feeding my spirit and my plants! We still have a few feet of snow in some parts of the yard, but I'm seeing big results in the melting process and I know winter is over. The Weather Network is calling for some snow next week, but I'm not even worried about it! :) Can you see how yellow my lemon is by the window? I feel great today! It's a little chilly though, the high will only be 5C, so I may not be able to sit out on the porch too long. I need to keep going through my cookbooks and make my meal plan for the next month. Just having the sun in my window is such a mood booster!
Yesterday I started my sprouts. Nothing fancy, just wide-mouthed Mason jars with some cheesecloth on top. I bought only two packs to start, alfalfa and a "spring salad" mix of broccoli, radish, alfalfa and red clover. I soaked them for 6 hours as directed.
Then drained them and let them sit overnight. For the next few days I have to rinse and drain twice a day, and let them sit and do their thing. In five days I should be eating some sprouts! If this works out, then I'll likely have an assembly line type of dealie going so I always have some sprouts to munch on.
Could it be????? Did my seed-whispering work?
