What a difference a day makes.

Amazing what a difference a day makes in the life of as seedling.  Out of the eight trays I planted five are sprouting.  It’s fascinating to see  how much they have grown in a day. The fenugreek seedlings pushed the soil up with as they grew over a cm. The soil stayed on top of the seedlings, looking like crumbly foam.

Our weather is a bit hot and humid for sprouting, so I decided it would be better to plant the seeds and grow micro greens.  I love the intense flavour of micro greens.  They will stay fresher and keep longer than sprouts which don’t do very well in humidity.

Tonight I picked the last of the kale and choy sum micro greens for the salad. They were lovely, four little leaves tiny stalks lots of flavour.

It is 5 months since I started my eating green and leafy with one month of my challenge to go.  My life has changed,  my garden is established and I have eaten something out of the garden every day, though I think I did miss one.  I am completely hooked on both gardening and blogging with lots of plans for more of both.

  1. Wow, thats amazing!!! I’ve just started to get into looking after my own little herb garden, it’s amazing how quickly they grow. I love checking on them everyday and seeing those little changes. It’s such a rewarding feeling 😀

    • Herbs are such a great thing to grow with their intense flavors. I think because these seeds are used for sprouts they germinate really quickly. I can’t believe how they are growing. The weather is so humid at the moment it’s hard to keep sprouts fresh. I think this is going to work really well. Thank you for visiting
