Welcome Spring With Sprouted Seeds

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.
