Debbie’s Sprout Experiment

photo-41

Debbie is using our unused vermicompost farm as an experimental sun flower seed sprout farm. Today, we moved it into the shade of the North wall of the Greenhouse. There have been no sprouts yet and she says maybe the seeds hadn’t soaked long enough before setting them into the bin layers. Usually you soak for 24 hours and then keep them wet while allowing the water to strain through. The vermi bins are doing a good job of straining through the water, however, they may have been drying out in the sun too quickly and not watered enough. We will see what happens though! As Debbie says, “Everything is an experiment!”photo-51
