Mais revenons nous a nos lentilles germées. The containers hold water but not in the right way, so I begged a very old bath-towel from laundry and cut ovals of towelling to fit in the bottom of them. Towelling strikes me as being an excellent surface for sprouting beans: it is designed to be water-retaining but the little thrums in the cloth keep the sprouts from immersion. But that's experimental; we'll see how they serve. Leave the lids off! to circulate air and keep the fungus at bay.
Here's where we started:
|SH&SC||Smoked Haddock & Salmon Chowder|
|C&VS||Chicken & Vegetable soup|
|CT&B||Creamy Tomato & Basil|
|C&C||Carrot & Coriander|
|L&SBS||Lentil & Smoked Bacon Soup|
Update: I am amazed, and delirah, to report that all of replicates are beginning to sprout with max shoot length ~8mm. About 50 hours from first wetting.
