How to Sprout Seeds for Planting
Sprouting the Seeds
Recently, I heard of a new way to sprout seeds for planting and the mother in me smiled at dark warm wombs for baby seeds to grow.
Dampen a brown paper towel (no bleach), sprinkle with desired seeds, place in a small plastic baggie (Ziploc sandwich bag), and insert next to your skin. The photo above shows an older farmer pulling the seeds in the bag from his long red underwear. The consistent warmth encourages sprouting and the proximity to the gardener makes sure they aren’t forgotten and left to dry out.
