weedy wednesday

This week’s garden entry is an indoor, year-round crop:

Alfalfa sprouts!  I decided to start growing my own after finding seeds at the food co-op a while back.  Sprouts are incredibly easy to grow: Toss a spoonful into an empty container, soak overnight, then cover the container with a piece of nylon stocking, and rinse the sprouts 1-2 times a day for 5 days, leaving them alone and outside of direct sunlight otherwise (these ones are on day 4).   On day 5,  put them in sunlight for a little bit to green up.  Finally, give them a last rinse and start munching.  I’ve been eating a lot of salads lately so I’ve been adding sprouts onto those, although they are also a delicious addition to hummus and tomato sandwiches (quite possibly my favorite sandwich ever.  It’s really fun to have a “crop” with such a quick return time and high success rate–try it out!
