from the ground up



One word describes this delicacy.  Easy.

Only three parts to complete this whole.

Seeds.  Soil.  Container.

Okay, maybe five parts, if you add sunshine and water into the equation!

In just over a week, we went from simple sunflower seeds to fat, succulent, juicy sprouts.

Trimmed with scissors, rinsed and tossed in with a little basil-infused olive oil, salt and pepper.  Described as nutty or a bit like a pumpkins’ seed flavor.  My thoughts were quenching and tender.

We shared them with our first visiting guests.  Dinner wouldn’t have been complete without the joyous company and the sprouts didn’t last very long either!

I sourced my sprouting seeds from Johnnys Select Seeds!

We have been collecting, gathering, planning. This project of ours has been many weeks in the planning. And, at long last, we settled down for a sunny afternoon project on the deck.

Rocks into glass.

Potting soil. Fern.

A succulent or two.

Sand. Brightly colored Oxalis.

Add an airplant and a touch of moss…and Voila!

Our own tabletop terrariums. Complete with grazing buffalo, of course!
