About a month ago, I watched Atomic Shrimp's video on "bio snacky", that's basically a jar with mesh on it for sprouting beans (Video here: youtu.be/30CIZyAIsFk ) and decided to try myself.

I didn't have any mung beans so I used lentils. It went really well, and pretty much all sprouted. Ate them in a salad, just tasted like bean sprouts.

Before I ate them, I transferred a few to some seeding pots, and they're growing really well.

Not sure what a lentil plant looks like or if they will survive the Dutch climate, but will be fun to find out.

My other seeds seem to be non-starters. I think they got too hot, as I had them in a greenhouse made from a storage crate, and it was unusually hot weather.

Thought I would try sprouting the remaining broccoli and rocket seeds in the same way as the lentils, see how it goes.

Seeds update; they've both started spouting and already have leaves! The Rocket seeds seem to clump together, hopefully they'll separate as they grow.

Seed update:

Rocket is really starting to grow, will have to put them in soil soon.
