I'm hoping for results somewhere between these two distinct stages, but love the idea of eating something that would one day become a very lovely flower of the sweet pea variety. A lot more than I like eating eggs and thinking that they could have become lively members of the poultry family... moving swiftly on! Any ideas for repurposing old glass jars come in very handy over here, as we love to save old glass jars from the resounding smash of the communal glass recycling bin where possible, and this little 'Lawrence of Arabia' jar (as it has become known) is sprouting some delicious alfalfa seeds. Easy peasy to care for (twice daily rinsing with tepid water and space on a shelf in normal temperature), ready for harvest within one week, and a tasty addition to all the summer salads we are readily consuming!
