First of all, sorry I didn’t do a post for Day 4 of my sprout adventure. By the time I got home from work late, took care of the chicks and watched the Presidential Debate, I was just too tired to post.
So here we are at the end of Day 5. My radish, alfalfa & broccoli mix are doing great and are ready to harvest.
My bean and pea sprouts seem to be moving along a little slower. Here is how they look at the end of Day 5. I think I will rinse, drain and let them sit another day.
But the alfalfa, radish and broccoli mix are defnitely ready to go. I laid them out on a towel just to get a good look at them.
Then I put them in a bowl of water. I swished the sprouts around in the water to loosen up the seeds that were attached to the sprouts.
Then I took a spoon and took as many of the seeds out as possible. (A big thank you to my hand model, Jeff)
I can’t wait to give the chicks their sprouts. They are going to love them!
