Our chickpeas experience

From cotton to earth
From small to tall
You got there first
Quicker than them all

This experience came out by accident. We soaked chick peas a bit too long and some of them started to sprout. So we just put them on soaked cotton wool to let them continue their process which turned out into a full swing project!

    • It’s an old trick my kids used to come back with from kindergarten but I had no intention of repeating it so soon before summer holidays, as I explained in my post, it just happened…
      Thanks for commenting, I appreciate your feedback:)

    • Some things just happen and they are the easiest. This was one of them. You have to put them in a small pot of earth not long after its sprout is a bit longer than the one in the photo then, transfer to a bigger pot once it’s long enough to go round a stick. Wishing you a easy and good result!
      I’m looking forwards to yours now 🙂
