Seed Update

Here's just a quick update on a few of the seeds that I've started. After the Moringa and Hippeastrum, I also started some Quinoa. This is a grain (not technically) native to the Andes which is high in nutritional value and a complete protein. It doesn't require dehusking, but must be soaked for several minutes prior to cooking to remove a bitter toxic powder that covers the seeds. This is generally removed before the seeds are sold.

Moringa oleifera (still no more germination but it's been cool, planted about two weeks ago, 12 Days).

Hippeastrum (growth is slow but steady, 26 Days)

Quinoa (they look kind of sad, some germinated but only had stems and no leaves)
