March Skill of the Month: Sprouting Seeds!
I know. I know. I’m just a tad late launching our new Skill of the Month. Chalk it up to the pressures of writing a book and a case of spring fever. Sprouting seeds is a great skill to learn this month because many of you already have seeds on the brain. Perhaps you’ve already started your own seedlings or are planning your spring garden. Even if your garden is nothing to brag about, and mine wasn’t last year!, anybody can sprout seeds. If a kindergartner can sprout bean seeds, you can sprout alfalfa, wheat, radish, and just about any other seed yourself!
Tomorrow morning I’ll be posting an informative article about why this is an important skill, but in the meantime, this video demonstrates how simple and inexpensive sprouting seeds can be. If you’re planning on sprouting wheat or bean seeds, be sure to store them without oxygen absorbers. Seeds are living things and need oxygen. Be sure to report either here or on my Facebook page how your sprouts are coming along, which types of seeds you’ve sprouted, and how you’ve used them.
