Indeed. Just get some seeds, plant, and make sure the bunnies don't beat you to the harvest!

Could I sprout them like bean sprouts? How long do I let them grow?


Thanks, Steve. The closest place with an Asian market around here is Denver...

Bunnies got into the radicchio.

I don't know - I've never tried that. It takes a week to 10 days for them to sprout in the ground and another couple of weeks to get a good-sized stem with leaves.

All pea shooting aside, the pea sprouts is such a wonderful idea. I wold caution though, that as other sprouts, cair must be taken to heat teh srpout sufficint to destroy any salmonella, as it can be harbord in the seed, or be on the suface in a dormant state. Once placed in a moist, warm, and fertile environment, it can rapidly propigat itself and be in and on your sprouts.

Back to the original topic, I had a big slice of ripe cantalope, and a cold glass of milk to chase down the pills I have to take daily.
