It's Aliveeee! Sprouts Edition! Part II :D

Hey guys! Welcome to the second episode of It's Aliveeee! Sprouts Edition!! It's been about ~16 hours since I started the sprouts - I rinsed them and soaked them overnight (see the first post, here!). They've expanded a lot!

Step 2: Drain the seeds thoroughly, and rinse well with cold water. I like to shake them around in cold water in the jar to make sure they get rinsed well.

Drain as much of the water out as you can (try not to have any pooled at the bottom when the jar is upright), and cover the jar with a small piece of thin cloth or mesh. You can secure it with a rubber-band if you like, but I didn't bother with mine.

All together!

Store in a dark and cool place - I went for behind the dish drying rack next to my sink!

I was excited to see that some of my seeds had already started sprouting just from soaking overnight! Can't wait to see how they'll grow! :)

Mung beans...
... green lentils...
... and French lentils!
Now all that's left to do is rinse them twice a day and wait! :)
