For one of our homeschool group meetings, a Mom taught us all how to plant sprouts in soil and
let them grow to about this big, and then eat them!!!
They are delicious! These being sunflower sprouts.
We all planted some sprouts of our own.
Add a bit of soil to the bottom of your container, load it down with soaked sunflower sprout seeds, and then cover with some soil to help keep them moist. Water often.
It didn't take long for our sprouts to come us and be eaten. :) Yum!
We did save out one little sunflower sprout that had lots of roots and planted him in his own pot.
Just to see how he grows.
We like to do these little experiments. :)
It is wonderful to nurture the love of growing things in our children.
So they can know where food comes from,
to learn to provide some foods for themselves, and
most of all to see the amazing creation that the Lord God has made!
This wonderful Amazing Seeds magazine was ordered from Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Co. by a fellow homeschool mom. She shared copies with all the kids in the homeschool group we attend.
You can click on the above link to order your own.
It is a fantastic magazine with lots of trivia,
information on plants,
This was very interesting for all the kids as they browsed through them and then shared something with the group that they thought was interesting.
I hope you have a wonderful day! Perhaps even taking some time to think about gardening.
