I harvested my first sprouts yesterday night, I'm so proud!
The pink radish was particularly vigorous, having grown hundreds of cute little green stems, and developped symmetrical roots, with tiny lashes, on the other side of the sprouter rack. Those guys had even started to suffocate the mixed seed sprouts on the bottom rack -- I'll have to remember that, and grow them on either side of an empty safety rack next time!
I immediately conducted a taste test, and a very satisfactory one at that : both crops are nicely crunchy and peppery (the pink radish particularly, as expected). I threw a fistful of both types into the spelt and tofu salad I had for lunch today, and I love the look of these little creatures, I love the bite and tang they add, I love the fact that they're at their nutritious peak, chock-full of vitamins and nutrients, and I love the fact that I grew them myself, on my very own kitchen counter!
