I ended up putting the sprouted fava beans in a pan of water, instead of discarding them after the mini-germination test, and put the pan on a south-facing windowsill. A few days ago, a little natural selection happened: the pan got knocked to the floor, and the kinda brittle main root snapped on three of them, leaving only the biggest, healthiest one in one piece. I put it back in the pan… Amazing what a plant can do, in a few days, with nothing but water and some sun. Tiny hydroponics!

I just really love your site! What a beautiful picture.
Beans are fantastic! Never underestimate them (as I did with my runner beans called ‘Enorma’ – but I think we’ll be able to coexist :) )
Have you ever looked into sprouting as feed for your chickens? I am going to look into that. It would be great for them to have some good greens at this time of year!
