A couple of months ago, when my in-laws we’re visiting, we all went to the Farmer’s Market at Forsyth Park. I’ve been enamored with greenery lately.
Unfortunately, being enamored does not translate to a green thumb. I had an orchid in my office that died. I had two succulents that I let fall out of their pots. My basil occasionally browns (though it’s still alive since February!). My hanging plants outside died so fast. No green thumb here, but that doesn’t mean I’m not into it.
The farmer’s market had a ton of greenery, including micro greens and sprouts, of which I bought a whole box while there! When we visiting my in-laws a few weeks later, I was grateful to be gifted sprouts. I ordered a sprouting jar off Amazon and set to work!
I had to let all the seeds soak overnight.
Right away some seeds starting turning green. This is just after the first night of soaking!
When things actually started sprouting, I was so pumped. I had no idea what to expect but it was glorious!
Look at the increase in volume!
Taking picture of a jar is really hard.
This is from this morning! I think it’s done. I’m planning on rinsing tonight and hoping to enjoy this weekend.
A few thoughts:
- They look pretty dirty. I wonder if I didn’t rinse them well enough.
- Rinsing 2-3 times per day is about all I can really commit to. Plants are a lot of work!
- I think the next greenery I buy will be plastic.
