The speed at which seeds begin growing with just plain tap water surprises everyone … once both the root and the shoot have sprouted then the seed may be eaten either raw or cooked. Here is a picture of the alfalfa seeds placed in one of the sprouting trays yesterday and another picture of some mung beans. The beans had been soaked overnight in a small jug of water and then placed in another sprouting tray just 12 hours ago. This is just 24 hours from soaking the first lot of (alfalfa) seeds.
and laid in the sprouting tray for 12 hours
