We finally have sprouts that are showing COLOR! Day 6 is showing AWESOME growth! I am still uncertain on if a root base will form like I have read about. Remember this is an experiment for us anyhow!
It looks like after researching, that I am “disturbing” the roots too much in the beginning, so they are not growing as fast. (I found a few ebooks on Amazon that are free downloads.)
I think that we are putting too many seeds in the trays to start as well… Tomorrow we are going to switch it to 2 cups per tray and do 2 trays a day instead of one.
See! I can grow food for my chickens! But you weren’t doubting my green thumb, right? After all, I grow a huge veggie and herb garden every year too!
We are up to 5 trays and 1 to soak overnight tonight. We will have them grown for several more days in the trays and then start feeding to the hens.
