The following experiment is a fun and easy way to see the effects of germination and the quick growth of some plants
These are the materials needed to make your own fast growing edible forest:
-Shallow dish or plate
-All purpose potting soil
Put a small amount of potting soil on the bottom of a shallow dish.
Now sprinkle a handful of lentils over the soil evenly.
Water lentils generously and press down any lentils that float above the water.
Place dish in a semi- sunny window out of direct light and do not allow drying out.
In just over a week you will see the lentils beginning to sprout and before long you will have a lentil forest.
* You can use new lentil sprouts in a salad!
