i just wanted to say hey,
ive been sproutin.
black beans, pinto beans, and brown rice.
and let me tell you, when i first saw those little tails peaking out, i could have cried.
we did a project in second grade, finding out if red, blue, yellow, or sunlight would grow a plant the fastest. i dont remember which light i used, but my plant never grew. nothing. it was heartbreaking, as were many things in gradeschool. however, i feel completely redeemed and elated now, due to my sprouts. however, i worry that they may secretly rot and i will have no idea.
ACCUENTUATE THE POSITIVE.
anyway, speaking of beans, i also started a new book called "the beans of egypt, maine" which arrived in the mail yesterday. it was a complete impulse buy, that sprang fourth after reading this article, sent to me by Jessica Leigh Gravedigger Ferlic.
