|Sunflower seed sprouts. The actual seeds become the first leaves. |
Once they are a darker green, they'll be ready for eating/harvesting.
These sprouts will be turning green pretty soon and they will be ready for harvesting. My next batch will be ones with the shells still on and they will be covered with a thin layer of compost/dirt. I did some research on growing these sprouts. This is one site: http://www.ehow.com/how_4430694_sprout-sunflower-seeds.html if you're interested.
My husband loves sprouts, so there's always a willing taste tester at our house, and what doesn't get used in some sort of salad will be put on a sandwich. Right now they're sort of like berries for me. I eat them as fast as I can pick them!
