On Monday, I picked up my third packet of spinach in four years. I have never had any luck with the little yummy bastards. I thought by getting Burpee seeds, fresh off the shelves in March that I could beat my track record of sprouting absolutely none of them!
On Wednesday night I soaked the seeds in water and a few drops of liquid fertilizer. Thursday morning the cups were drained and the seeds were placed on a damp coffee filter soaked with the same solution. They were placed in a plastic bag and placed on top of the refrigerator.
It took him two days to sprout those spinach plants.
Right now, I am trying to sprout spinach in my Aerogarden, but so far, the only thing I’ve ended up with is fuzzy seeds. At this point, I’m not sure if it’s normal or if it’s mold. Based on my track record, I’m leaning toward mold.
