One week later – and the seeds have sprouted. It’s been fun watching them and I’ve learned that the sprouts may be eaten, though possibly best in a mix of sprouts as the seeds were the brown ones and apparently very hot. The recommended seeds for sprouting are the yellow ones. Now you know. I’m not sure just how these may be said to represent the kingdom of heaven. I guess their progress will depend in part on my ability to tend them. But they certainly wouldn’t have grown like that if I’d left them in the packet!
