Here is a fun way to get ready for spring. Try sprouting seeds for planting later on. I saved the seeds from a grapefruit. Then I placed them on a wet paper towel and covered them with another wet one. Set on a dish. (see photo 1) Then cover the entire plate with a plastic bag and keep closed. (photo 2) Set it in a warm place and check every couple of days. I put it on the dryer, so every time I dried clothes it got a warm boost. DO NOT set it on a hot water heater or stove where it could catch fire. After a week or 10 days, you will have sprouted seeds ready for planting. (photo 3). Try it with oranges, apples, dried beans,or another seed of your choice.
