Sprouts!

Hi all,

  First try at growing sprouts in quart canning jars.  Doing alfalfa, broccoli and mung beans. Any words of wisdom?

Never eaten them, sorry. They

Never eaten them, sorry. They grow pretty predictably - try 'em the day the packet says they'll be done?

Hi Gisette, Yewww, gross. 

Hi Gisette,

Yewww, gross.  Good Mom for making you clean the mess .    I made sure the canning jars were cleaned and sterilized the seeds.  I've been rinsing the sproutlets twice a day and they do look good.  So, my sprouts are sprouting and I have no idea how big they are supposed to get before eating. Any suggestions on alfalfa sprout size?

Words of wisdom: Don't forget

Words of wisdom: Don't forget to tend them every day.

I haven't grown bean sprouts since an unfortunate traumatic incident in childhood. I forgot them in the closet for a week. A cruel parent made me clean out the mess. Well, OK, Mom was completely reasonable. But it was gross.
