Growing Rye Sprouts

Growing Rye Sprouts

Rye is best stored in a cool location because, it is, on ocassion pleasing to a particular pest - the Indian Meal Moth, which can appear out of nowhere when conditions are right (hot). These are organic seeds after all, so there is no other way to keep your seeds absolutely safe, except to freeze them. Consider yourself warned =:-}

Happy Sprouting!
