I still grow sprouts in jars. I use window screen for the screen...and I have radish, pea, and broccoli sprouts in a big pot that I've been using for salads all winter.

I wonder why I can't get my chocolate butt to grow by sitting it in water.

You're a bad girl. Remember; "...If you eat too much, oh, oh, you'll awake with a tummy-ache. On the goo-ood ship, Loley-Pop..."

I miss Shirley Temple movies. They just made you feel good. Her movies made a whole generation, and them some, feel good.

I'm sure you meant would, but I did laugh as I pictured you as a rolling, unforested bit of land in a corner...To bring this back on topic, the Romaine lettuce butts are sprouting.

I love typos...glad it brought you merriment!

As much spinach and cabbage as I have been eating lately, I should start growing it...but I don;t have a garden plot and the spot I have outside for a container garden just bakes in the sun.
